How do Plugin turn off automatic p, br for a post?
After plugin activation, WordPress will no longer attempt to add
<br>tags to your posts (so you’ll be responsible for adding these yourself).
I upgraded the plugin and it lost my default settings!
No, it didn’t. Disable and re-enable the plugin and the setting should be updated to the new setting.

I tried this as a last resort to try to improve the formatting of my commenting system, wpDiscuz (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpdiscuz/), which by the way is great! Unfortunately in my case (because I need to select only one or two words sometimes) it kept adding <p> tags to the text, which added line breaks and unwanted spacing. This plugin solved that problem!
