Comment (by marybaum):

 Have no fear! I won't be running this copy near any sort of linting! This
 is advertising, not editorial, ui or software. Read it out loud and see if
 you can catch the cadences -- there are places where the text repeats
 itself for effect, as you might see in poetry or music.

 The paragraph breaks are intentional -- I break rules in this kind of
 copy. Those are not mistakes. They're decisions.

 Remember that my degree is in Make it look intentional.

 5.4 about page screen as it could help to copy review what @marybaum
 > Please don't run WPCS linting! 😂 I tried to minimized the amount of
 semantics issues but I didn't run the coding standards tools.
 > I also fixed some typos.
 > I'll add a complete review of the issues I found on the copy later :)
