For someone who is obsessively anal, it does make a difference.

For those who want absolute control over every single part of what they see and do, it must be quite irksome to have other people do things slightly differently.

For my part, if you want to box your comments, it's your time to spend. As long as the comment itself is useful, I fail to see why that is important.

I'm obviously not obsessively anal enough.
