yes, for your own entries typing CSV by hand might be a comfortable

the format is pretty simple.

but if you want to read "random" content generated by your users (like
journalists writing articles) you'd better use a tool that generates
valid CSV and read it with a CSV library.

you never know where a "," a """, or even a "\" might be hiding...
