Fun with Fonts

Okay lets start by saying I am an antagonistic pessimistic passive aggressive A$$. Now that that is out of the way.

What is with the needy changing fonts in the post just to make themselves feel better?

First the thought that "oh they will like this" is just total BS.

Upsizing and colorization other than to express YELLING AND USING ALL CAPS FOR THE SAME. is just as big a nuisance. Fontface Like you think anything you say is more important than what the other member have said.

What about downsizing? Fontface If you down size your font to show you are less significant than anyone else why would we care to read it?

If you feel the need to express yourself use the signature and the classifieds where marketing would be acceptable.

Now that I have expressed myself if you do not post a response this will fade away. I know there are exceptions like when you just need to antagonize someone.

If you read the rules of the forum, it explains what is allowed and what is not.

Zee, how can we EVER tell when you are changing fonts on purpose and using your spell check. It is always an adventure to TRY to read your post sometimes. Oh course, sometimes they make more sense the way they appear than what you intendedlll l
