I have a number of sources (from the same WP installation in a multi-site set-up) pulling, with the 'Permalinks point to: The local copy on this website' setting chosen.
On the 'local copy' of the post, the paragraph breaks are stripped.
Note that when I view the post in Edit mode (Visual mode) the paragraph breaks are retained.
If I manually wrap the paragraphs with <p>...</p> in HTML mode, the issue is solved. (This obviously isn't something I want to do for every new post that is pulled in by the syndication manager...)
Thoughts on how this can be rectified?
