Thanks guys!!! I'm on my way towards becoming "Forum Literate." With all those tips even I should be able to figure this out and become comfortable with quotes.....TIM

All this head scratching is bad for the hairline.

PS: Can I completely delete a post or will that ruin the continuity of the thread? Maybe I should ask the founder.

I want to quote specific sentences, not entire posts. If you think about the process as if you've never done it before, then it becomes possible to give clear instructions.

THANX...TIM



I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Hey Noddy shouldnt this be on a sticky somewhere?...I got into trouble at uni recently for putting WTF on the discussion board. In my defence I did some research and found over 200 legitimate meanings for the acronym wtf...but I did not see what's that fish...althought that really would not have helped in my defence..like the World Taikwando Federation didnt either...Wow That's Fantasic is what I said I meant!

Nah I've never had trouble reading your messages. There was a guy that wrote something completely in texting short hand, I'm good, but i'm not that good at deciphering what people write when they write like that
