If I were to anticipate and compensate for any habitual or accidental imprecision of a user, I'd probably employ a broad set of conditionals rather than just assume and provide for a single flavor of innaccurate input, even if indeed usual. Please consider that your "slight error" correction produces incorrect results from correctly selected data.

remember that selecting blocks of complete lines makes the newline at
the end of the last or single line part of the selection and write my
clips accordingly. In the one case where I replace the newline by
semicolon plus space I simply don't select the last line and am happy
