I find them perfectly readable - they have an optimal line width of ~70
characters, there's a single line gap between paragraphs, and they aren't
right justified, hence giving the eye something to grip onto. This has
been standard Usenet formatting since there was Usenet.
It could be you're using inappropriate software to read it with - you
should configure your software to display posts in an easily readable
fashion (whatever that means for you), and if you can't do this, start
using some decent software with which you can. What are you using, by
