It's the author who should care about the way his/her message looks like, but don't you think posting in such a manner causes the forum to look, let's say, unprofessional?

I don't really mind reading 2cm x 2cm letters but couldn't you consider turning OFF all those annoying formatting except of the predefined styles, like [code] and [quote] ?

Thanks!

Looks like he fixed it, at least the font size. I don't think restricting everyone is the way to go. P3Opl3 CAN sTiLl B3 HiGlY AnNoYInG JuSt wITh sOM3 AsCiI If tH3Y wANT TO :wink:

I partially agree, but some of the colors and formatting available used this way don't make the output any more valuable, so are they really needed? Don't think so.

Or maybe I'm talking rubbish?... Thinking like this I realized that those 'emoticons' on the left are useless, too, so is the rest of this form, except of the field where I'm typing right know... Ekhmm.. :oops: Anyway, that was just my opinion, respect or ignore it :P

Of course I respect your opinion. I don't think you can call emoticons useless though. Maybe if you mean the image representation of ;-) Similar for text formatting, it's not needed most times, but still useful to make long posts more readable.

Split this off from the Report thread.
