Excessive use of colored fonts

There are posters who use colored fonts in all threads, and it gets on my nerve and disrupt the threads.

Could you prevent the colored fonts?

Thanks.

Re: Excessive use of colored fonts

I know you mean me smallJohn but I don't care. Using the same color in all threads is very strange and monotonic. The whole universe is colored and there are no black and white TVs and Phones any more. I find it weird that all members use the same color in posting when there are like 1000 colors in the world. That's like wearing the same color all the time. It's BORING!

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

No problem with this, to me it's a clear indication that said posts come from a 14-year old Justin Bieber-fan, or someone with general 'intellectual challenges' (as it's called apparently in the US, in all other places in the world we'd just conclude ).

As such, why bother - easy to immediately indicate that said posters should be on one's ignore list.

People should just use common sense! This is a forum, you want people to read what you post, presumably, so post it in a legible way.

I just hope that everybody understands this thread was a response to that other thread...

Excessive use of the word "ajde"

Just putting things in context.

Thanks scoobs I'm sorry I was so late in picking up on your translation And it does fit in perfectly with the thread.

Re: Excessive use of colored fonts

Just put Sweet Cleopatra in your ignore list like most people on this board have done and you'll be alright.
