Several posters have pointed out the conventional reasons
for preferring left justification to full justification.
However, I think a distinction has to be made between methods
of full justification. If full justification is achieved by adjusting
space between words (as it is in most word processors), then the result
is frequently as bad as convention says. But if full justification is
achieved by automatically adjusting spaces between letters (a somewhat
less common technique), then the result is much easier to read--and tends to
eliminate hyphenation, which also affects readability.
