[Mailman-Users] Welcome message has too many blank lines

I don't think that is what's happening because I tried typing the text in
manually and still ended up with 3 blank lines in between each paragraph.

I read something in the archives that caused me to try putting a couple of
spaces at the beginning of each paragraph, but no blank line. Sure enough,
that worked! Now there is only one blank line in between paragraphs. I
wanted to post this in case anyone else has the same problem.

You seemingly posted this from a Windows machine

Is it possible you let the DOS line endings sneak into the Mailman files
(and that Mailman carefully expands each single line ending into two of the
on-the-wire email line endings)?
