Are youall truly confused about the justification thread, or is my leg being pulled?

The issue (assuming this is a serious inquiry) is that the Kindle forces full justification, that is, the text fully extends from the left to the right. So if there are not enough letters in a line, the Kindle will force the words to be unnaturally spread to make the text reach the right margin.

Left-justification, or ragged-right, allows the right margin to end where the line would naturally end, with no unnatural forcing of spaces.

Since the K1 had the option for ragged-right, and the code apparently still exists in the K2, but not turned on, this is an irk for some people, including me.
