the only valid argument presented here was the argument put forth by
qurgh who said:

because I do want to help beginners, from now on I will put each
sentence in its own line, and use curly brackets to single it out
according to tkd. and if a beginner wants to discuss any sentence, I
will be happy to reply.

but I will be damned if I use punctuation ever again. I am not writing
to entertain "experts"; I am writing in order to practice and yes help
others. As qurgh said, this list is to help people learn. Not to
please you "experts".

so, unless someone now tells me that I have to use the same fonts with
tkd, the same operating system 'oqranD used, or wear the same clothes
he was wearing when he was writing the tkd, then I believe this matter
is settled.
