It's a "paragraph". Up until recently we used line breaks so people had to press Enter twice to add the space. Some people didn't so we had walls of text. It also solves other problems.

If you want your sentence to be directly under the last one press Shift+Enter.

I thought @1101 was talking about double spacing between characters- had me scratching my head for a moment, haha. Until I realized they meant double line spacing.. makes much more sense to me now.
I had wondered when that changed, hadn't really bothered me though.

Thanks for the tip
I never would have worked that out and it has been bugging me on PMs I have written in the last few days :)
