Pasting from Word Answered

I discovered that if I write a post in Word and paste it into a comment box, it destroys the paragraphs and sentences by splitting them onto various lines as shown in the image. I took this block of text from the Tesla Wiki, pasted it into word, then copied and pasted it into a comment box. It looks fine until you actually click the "make comment" button.

Similar things happen if you copy/paste within the page as well.

It's annoying, but it seems that the editor reads the end of a line of text as an actual text-break (as if the return key had been pressed at that point).

When I pasted from Word into a new PM then copied and pasted from the PM to the comment, it kept it's formatting. Weird.
