I can see on this forum there are varying line spacing examples;

look here at my double line space for example

yet other posts on this site with multiple lines include narrower spacing.Is there a way to tackle this? See post below for a proper example of the difference in spacing. I have used exactly the same device .Maybe im just being an idiot. Even this post now has two different line spacing examples.

Well, no. Technically, the line-spacing stays the same. But your first post has three paragraphs and paragraphs, as a structural unit of the text, get additional spacing. 

There is an ACP setting called “Return Key Behavior”, which turns off the use of independent paragraphs, but I strongly suggest not to change that. There is no good reason to make forum posts in a typewriter-kinda-way in 2021. Proper structuring of the text is the best option. 

With CSS changes, one can also change the paragraph padding/margins, so the structure stays the same but the additional paragraph spacing is not used anymore.
