I have a great idea for something to waste space in this newsgroup. We could try writing some messages that are naturally right-justified. Also, if we do something as silly as that, we could also try posts that are self-referential like this one. You might think that writing self-referential right-justified posts would be difficult, but I am writing this one with very little effort. The trick is to just make sure that you keep an eye on how many spaces remain at the end of each line as you approach it. If you think your current line of thought will go past the end, then try to rephrase the sentence to make sure that it ends at the exact point you want it to. It really isn't very difficult. Soon you will start a habit of making all of your documents perfectly fit within a given margin. One problem is that you may be unable to rephrase the sentence so that it stays within the right margin. If that happens, you must remove the sentence and come up with another one to put in its place. After all, the format is usually more important than the content of a message. This is obviously true with this message, because it has almost no content, but the style is so amazing that it forces you to read through this message ignoring the fact that it says next to nothing. Now, I will do something different. I will start to shrink the right margin by one so that it starts to head back towards the beginning of the line. See, there is so much that you can do with the style of a post without worrying about the content. I actually have no more ideas to put in this stupid post, but I must keep typing until I finally get to the left side of the screen and end with one letter. I still have a long way to go, but I'm starting to get the hang of not paying attention to content and concentrating on the shape of the text. My words seem to just flow out into this beautiful empty article. I try to make sure that I do not make typos or errors with grammar because they might make it look like I am cheating. Well, it is getting close to the left side. Less than forty more lines to go and I will be done with this message. This is starting to get very boring, but it is still not very tough to do. I think that it might get more difficult once I am closer to the end. Well, I guess I will find out in a short time, since the end is approaching. It does seem to be getting more difficult, requiring a more complete look at the line. I seem to be using words that are smaller. This might not be easy now. It is much more common for me to delete a sentence. It is almost at the end. I can see it is almost the end. Dumb is what I think this end is !
