    That's a good way to do it Gunn. And thanks Youngblood & others. While Attroll & Jeff have been busy w/ other things, our newest mods, Angrysparrow & Headchange4U have been indispensable, taking care of things that are far beyond my abilities.

    There's no desire to single anyone out on those kinds of things. That's why I made the request I did by PM. Just trying to something that will make reading threads a little less time consuming for everyone.

    And about the size of picture files, I had mentioned that a while back. Sometimes pictures are so big that a reader has to scroll side to side to read the text that was included in the post.
    Sometimes a reader has to scroll waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay across to read the text... then waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back to start the next line<G>.
    So a friendly reminder to figure out how to remedy that is a good idea.

    Thumbs up thats a great ideal gunnparker

    I like to quote other people too, but I edit the quoted text and remove the images and delete all text that has nothing to do with what I am going to say, leaving only the section I really want to repeat.
    I hope this may help others.

    Neo: The only person who can start a thread and then post agreeing with the original poster.


    To stay on topic:

    I read the forums sometimes from my Phone, when people quote a long post just to say "You got that right!" I do get a little peeved, but only because I have to keep scrolling down and the load times entering the thread. On my PC or laptop, it never bothers me because I can hit my [Page Dn] key.

    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    This thread is a great example of what can happen when all involved have open minds. We all learn something. Go figure!! Thanks mods and others who contribute making both the content and the spirit of this site something that has made my hanging experience better faster than it ever would have had I been on my own.

    Oh, btw, I forgot to mention the abundance of modesty. (smile)
