Why do we need to know how you typed your post?


Mark <---- who can type by himself.
We agree Mark. netting makes more logical sense.

Sorry about that stupid App thing
it comes on automatically on each post and gets hidden when typing unless I uncheck first..
Does anyone know how to do a permanent uncheck on this new CF App?

Re: Australia approves dumping in Great Barrier reef

Yes me to... It doesn't give me option to uncheck if I do 'quick reply'.

Also no spell check

Agreed. Perhaps a mod such as Coops can possibly organise to get the App updated.

I would say its driving plenty Batty.

Why do we need to know how you typed your post?


Mark <---- who can type by himself.
There were no shark deaths at Perth beaches for 50 years before 2000, which is why no call for shark nets. (The big question here is why the spike since?)
But nets wouldn't protect the group that gets chomped the most, surfers and divers, can't net 20,000km of WA coastline..

Re: Australia approves dumping in Great Barrier reef

Personally I cannot. It's out of my knowledge field. I have just got past smoke signals myself. However, ask the question in here

Forum Tech Support & Site Help - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

Then you can all chip in, have your say, and we shall see who is batty.

This spike is 6/7 taken in 10 years. I know it's 6 or 7 too many, especially to the people involved but it is not of epidemic proportions statistically.

No it's' not boatie It is a default signature that comes with smart phones that can automatically sync with other devices.
Just discovered how to turn it off for this CF App

Re: Australia approves dumping in Great Barrier reef

Cannot see why it is any more annoying than a signature to be honest. You finish reading the post and on to the next one surely. I would be one of the most easily annoyed sods ever born and they don't bother me at all.

Smoke signal finally reached one of us .

To get rid of your additional signature when using the app, tap on the three bars at the top left of the app, select 'Settings' (the last item in the menu that appears), select 'Signature' then delete the signature displayed .
