Why do Microsoft Support Staff Post Responses without any Spaces in them? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm constantly running in to post from Microsoft Support personnel that have no spaces in them. The text is all run together and unreadable.  For example:

    Somethinglikethis.Whereforwhateverereason,theysimplydecidednottousethemtoday.itsreallystartingtopissmeoff!pleasestopit!!!

  • Are you referring to replies in the forums? Can you post a link to an example? I don't believe I have ever seen this.

  • This is the only thread on your profile activity tab I could find where you complain about lack of spaces in a reply:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/d21c1d63-34b2-441c-bae2-d609b911c740/remote-management?forum=winserver8gen#96805db0-3c93-47f9-b504-23261356212d

    But the reply looks fine to me, nothing like the "example" you posted. In fact, the forum editor might remove unnecessary blank lines in a reply, if that is your complaint. Certainly, the reply you complain about is very readable.

  • They're just being efficient by getting rid of all that unnecessary white space.  Think of the saved bandwidth!

    I think it can happen when a poster tries to do a Copy and Paste from Word.  So maybe we need to know what browser the OP is using.
