I have to agree completely. If there aren't a full two lines (plus any
partial line at end of paragraph) at either end of a page or column, it
interferes with my reading "rythm" and reduces my overall comprehension
significantly. Exception: Single line paragraphs, but these are a
general linguistic (English) no-no, anyway, so they are fairly uncommon.

As one of those people who is really not very interested in the
un-spectacular details of typography, I am highly unlikely to study
them. That said, I admit to have learned quite a bit just by reading
this list! Osmosis?

Anyway, anything I produce longer than about two pages goes to somebody
else (friend, relative, anyone not directly involved in the project) for
proofing and overall readability-opinion before getting marked
"production ready." I have been known to completely rework a project
based these non-professional reviews.
