comment What exactly is wrong with 'It was a dark and stormy night'?
To be honest, to me Dickens's paragraph seems to come off worse in this comparison.

comment What's the indent rule of poetry?
@Martha: Interesting… (I don't consider "language" (or the scope of this website) to cover only those aspects that change meaning.) What is your opinion about english.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/typesetting and english.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/typography ?

comment Please help me improve this sentence…
From what I know about baseball, batters don't like curve balls… so Hollywood was going to get something they didn't like? :-)

comment What's the indent rule of poetry?
@Martha, @Robusto: Is indentation less a part of language than punctuation, capitalisation, paragraph breaks, etc.?

comment Should you use two spaces after a period, or just a single one?
This is a misleading question, because the question of how many spaces you type in your input is different from how wide the space looks in the output (e.g. in HTML), and if for the latter you are forced to choose between "one space" and "two spaces" (whatever that means), you have more serious problems with your typesetting system that you need to worry about first.
