Word Wrap
 
Would it ever be possible to have force word wrap on all posts? I am getting really tired of posts where people have extremely long syntaxes to post that make the posts looooooooooooooong.

There is word wrap. It won't get affected when others use the <code> tags and it won't wrap something that is just simply long with no spaces in the words, etc.

Yeah, I know
 
But there are instances in which people have a very long thing to type, like the path of something or a message that they copied from their computer.

Yes, this is what I explained in my previous post. Word Wrap is not smart enough to know where to cut it off, etc. Word wrap is enabled, but it can't clean up all things.

Wrapping in the case of the code tag or extremely long paths/words would have the propensity to completely break what the poster was trying to convey.
