Although Todd's comments may be construed as a little off-topic for this thread, I feel it necessary to make a comment. Todd is the moderator, the owner of this site, per se. As its owner/moderator he has the right, the responsibility and the privilege of setting the site's appearance to suit him. Of course, when he determines how the site is going to appear, he has to take into consideration that thousands of people will be reading the information contained therein and that it is a forum intended for the exchange of that information. The contributors of that informatin also must take that into consideration when they alter the format of their messages before they are posted.
And every webmaster feels the same, or ought to. Although my personal site is also intended for the exchange of information, it looks nothing like the Lottery Post, is not intended to look like it and never will. But it doesn't have the same purpose, either. It is not a forum. Given that, the format, the layout, the overall appearance is my creation, my conception, my responsibility. But, as a site that is intended for the presentation of information I also have to take into consideration that others will be reading it and that the information has to be in such a format as to make that information legible and reasonably easy to access, given whatever measures have to be taken regarding security matters.
Todd has always welcomed comments, including constructive criticism, of this site. I've personally has a few problems in the past working within the limits he has set regarding posts I have made, but that's MY problem, not his. He sets the rules.
Enough. Off my soapbox.
