IF your posts seem to get cut off.... Read This

This version of the forum does not undertsand smart quotes and certain other special characters, they get interpreted as "bad bytes" and cut off [what are smart quotes you ask?  quotation marks that, although all keyed the same, are automatically interpreted and set as opening or closing marks rather than vertical lines - they look curvy on the screen].   If you are copy/pasting from the web and some of the text gets cut off,  those quotes are probably to blame.  To fix the isusue,  copy the text onto the notepad app (or textedit if you are using a Mac) and use the find and replace function to replace all double and single quotes with dumb quotes (or any other charater - just get the quotes out of there!).

Regards,
