One of the problems with the current site here is that when you write a response you can only see four lines of type. It makes rereading before submitting a post difficult.
Perhaps this is to encourage people to write less. I wonder if that is wise. Often the shorter reponses are snappy comebacks and put-downs and the longer posts contain policy ideas. Is this a place to explore and lay out policy ideas and detailed discussion or should it be more like a comments section at the CBC?
If the answer is that we want to welcome more thought out ordered discussion why not give more room to read and write submissions -- like say 12 lines instead of 4?
