I'm writing an article and decided to try putting each sentence on a different 
line, which I've seen some people here recommend because it makes using version 
control easier.  It took a little while to get used to it, but I think I like 

However, I was a bit surprised when I found that a commented line starts a new 
paragraph.  For example, let's say I have a paragraph but I want to comment out 
a sentence because I'm not sure if I want it in.

#+begin_src org

In this paragraph I introduce an idea.
# Here is something I'm not sure about yet.
But I am sure about this.
And here is my conclusion.

#+end_src org

When this is exported, it becomes two paragraphs, as though the commented line 
was a blank line.  This was unexpected, because to me this is one paragraph with 
one sentence hidden.

People who write one-sentence-per-line, have you had this problem, and if so how 
did you handle it?
