Paragraphs again

I've grumbled here more than once about a tendency to write text without paragraphs. This seems to happen on the Internet quite a lot but it is spilling over into other writing as well. An example in today's Independent: Rhodri Marsden's "Cyberclinic" has a piece containing 105 lines without a paragraph break. Perhaps this is has something to do with the fact that Marsden is the paper's computer correspondent, but anyway, it means that his piece will remain unread so far as I am concerned.

Rhodri Marsden on :

Looks like a 750 word piece divided in six paragraphs of about 120 words each to me. Was it formatted differently in the print version?
