What I meant, for the first question, was that many other people have white space as well.
For the second question, even if there are seven lines, again, is it that big of a deal?
For the third question, if you don't want to know the answer, why even look at the question then? As long as I have helped someone, and my answer is correct, I think that's good. If you simply ask nicely, and say "I think that too much white space isn't good" or something like that, that's fine. You can see that for some of my solutions (after you said that nobody likes too much white space), I completely understand.
Also, I didn't mean to sound arrogant, supercilious, and self-aggrandizing. If I sounded that way (simply because I added seven white spaces, I'm sorry. Like I mentioned before, I don't use much white space (one line at most) anymore).
