  • We have been getting regular requests for users who have been locked out of their accounts because they have changed email adresses over the lifetime of their accounts. Please make sure the email address under your account is your current and correct email address in order to avoid this in the future.

Yep. Good work Bones. Kill this thread. That's the way.

Such an important thread it is too. It's a forum. People can say as much or as little (as long as it's 5 characters) as they like. No-one is obliged to read it though.

Try Twitter Bazeagle. Apparently it lends itself to short comments & exchanges of info. A forum is a place where ideas can be discussed. This normally requires words.

Do you read all the newspaper articles or just the ones that interest you? You always have a choice as does everyone that wants to write a little or a lot!!

Seriously, this forum isn't a place to deal with mental issues or anxiety problems. It's also not meant to be a place to spill your entire guts on and on and on. So Dan I reckon an 8 sentence limit be introduced. Train people to be concise.
A short post is a good post.

How about a 50 character limit for dumb ideas?

Excellent idea. It would also stop me getting in trouble at work, so many times I've been asked to do something but I've had to say, sorry I can't. I have to finish reading this.

Well-layed out, with spell-check completed, punctuation correct and the insertion of spaces where paragraphs begin and end are a pleasure to read, regardless of length.

One paragraph with no full-stops, capital letters for sentence beginnings and littered with incorrect spelling are more painful to read.

Exactly.

Whilst I do agree some kind of reasonable single post maximum character limit would be a good idea, it's far more helpful if people follow lismore_fan's advice above.

Use more carriage return spaces between sentences, make it clear, more web-friendly than if you were typing a letter or some such.
