Finally (what you originally asked for and no-one has provided yet), a
reasonable argument against full justification goes like this:

No novels use it.
No technical manuals use it.
No magazines use it.
Very few newspapers use it anymore.
>>>>>>

Actually, novels use full justification all the time. At least all the ones in my house do. Many magazines do too. (I'm looking at a copy of *Pharmaceutical Technology* at the moment. I don't like it in technical manuals, although I'm stuck with it for SOPs around here.

Just clarifying the argument.
