Not a bug  Profile Comments Spacing

In profile post comments (and other things I'd imagine), you can enter a series of newlines followed by text to stretch out the comment. Some members are abusing this. Doesn't cause much harm I guess but it's annoying and can stretch the page quite a bit.

http://xenforo.com/community/profile-posts/590/ for an example.

It'd be nice if consecutive newlines in comments were stripped to prevent this.

I don't really think this is a bug.

Deleting that function will not make XenForo better. My opinion is "Not A Bug" :)
I certainly can foresee some situations where it would be useful, but I'm not sure how else to combat this, or whether there gain of 2+ consecutive newlines in comments outweighs the con. Not sure if much will come of this (in core anyways, I guess I could change the behavior with an addon), but figured it couldn't hurt to post anyways.

You can do that in posts as well (notwithstanding the WYSIWYG editor issue that can prevent it), so that is fairly intentional. If you prevent it, they'll just space like this:
