Revised 2-10-2010

When posting on the forum, we respectfully request that you do not used bright colored bold lettering.
Among many reasons, the main one being that many members use different formats that do not display the bright lettering very well. When you are placing an article title, dark bold lettering is acceptable.
We simply ask that you be thoughtful of your fellow members.
