Newlines in Comments
Slashdot appears to translate each newline into a <br> tag. My suggestion is to instead translate any sequence of newlines into a <p> tag, and leave single newlines alone. It would still allow paragraphs to be typed naturally (with a blank line between them), without creating the formatting problems often caused by cut & paste (forced line breaks within a paragraph) and the natural tendency to surround <blockquote> sections with newlines.
What does everyone else think? Am I the only one who finds the <br> translation troublesome?"
