Well I feel the same way. The problem is that signatures are limited by characters, and a verticle space only counts as one character, instead of a whole line. When users put their fish lists in a horizontal fashion rather than verticle, it comes out looking a whole lot cleaner. For example I have
or I could have
Fish a, fish b, fish c
fish r, fish q, fish x
Both are the same "lenght" but one takes up a lot less space.
