    Thanks! Years of faffing around online have got to have taught me something, right? But I guess the key question is: did the OP find it useful?

    I'm on here too darn much and I don't think I've ever seen your name....
    That is definitely saying something! I have no life and even if I'm on the phone with a family member or my SO, they ask me if I'm on HF...okay I'm pretty pathetic.

    Off topic, but for those annoyed by font size/color &c, it is quite easy (in Opera and Firefox, anyway, and I think other browsers) to set the browser to always use your preferred font, size, and color.

    Heh. Do you mean me, or are you referring to the OP? If me... well, I did say that I mostly lurk. :-7 The truth is that I'm a beginner and newcomer to the horse world, so I figure I'm better off shutting up and seeing what those with more experience have to say, by and large. I've learned a LOT from reading here, and I expect that as I gain experience with horses and riding, I'll find more topics coming up where I Have An Opinion That Just Must Be Shared.

    I guess I'm lucky there - my partner co-owns our horse with me and we've been learning to ride together. So in our house it's more likely to happen that one of us will say "...so I saw this interesting thing on HF" and the other will be all "Oh? Do tell!"

    Cowgirlinda, do you really care what strangers think about you?
    Most well adjusted adults do not give it a second thought.
    The bold print of your post aside, it does seem to me that most of your post are filled with drama.
    Someones 'wild" stallion loose and breeding mares in the neighbor hood, starved horses you helped, now someone you know might be spreading rumours on this forum.
    I am a psychologist and what I gather from some of your post is a constant need for reassurance and attention. The coloured and bold print underlines this .
    Asking questions and starting conversations about subjects that are less dramatic might interest members more than the ones you have posted in the past.
    My advice to your is Relax, post without all the unnecessary details and in a more warm and inviting tone.
    There have been no indications of someone from your past undermining your credibility here on the forum.
    If someone does allow the MODS to do their jobs. They police this forum very well in case you have yet to notice.
    Enjoy the forum and allow the other members time to get to know you. Most of them are very kind and friendly. Just give them the chance. Shalom Donald

    I use FireFox, and sometimes when I mess with that some websites come up really funky and hard to read if I make the text big enough for my old eyes

    Well said. I agree 1000%. I also do not read the jokes and funnies....and that has been quite a large proportion of your posts. I would imagine that folks may tend to read those, and not comment. It seems to me that if you have had a LEGITIMATE question, it has been answered and you have gotten answers (whether or not you agree is another subject).

    Didn't read this thread so I don't know if this was suggested. When I click on a thread and I see annoying colored font (anything but black), text aligned in an odd way, other fonts, etc. I may read a sentence before closing the thread. Its just a huge turn off to me.

    I've gone through this thread and "liked" several of the responses. Please just consider that I have typed the same responses! :) Saves me typing it all out.
