Is it better to do:

message = """This is line1.
This is line2
This is line3\n"""


message = "This is line1.\n
message = message + "This is line2\n"
message = message + "This is line3\n"

Since the first method does not follow python's clean and easy looking 
indentation structure but the second just looks crude and ugly anyway.

If I indent the first version so the text is lined up to match code 
indentation then this comes out in the input and isn't aligned there.
