Nowadays, you just can't get the staff

What is it with these BBC Scotland bloggers? Both Brian and Douglas are obsessed with single sentence paragraphs; ok, sometimes they allow themselves two sentence paragraphs, but not very often.

Do they think that they are writing for The Daily Record?

I admire them both - they write some good stuff, but it is rather offputting. Just for once, it would be nice to see a proper paragraph, instead of a string of disconnected sentences.

I agree with you here. It is as though they are just writing a stream of consciousness; a bunch of hurriedly scribbled-out notes. Do they think their readers do not deserve some properly constructed thoughts? Is there a bit of snobbery about blogging that causes them to take this approach?

It is a right pain reading their blogs. Brian's certainly never used to be like that. Glad some others have noticed!

Great to see you starting your jihad against one sentence paragraphs with a piece which contains a one sentence paragraph. I think this clever manoevure will outsmart the enemy.
