Like gramma dishes, I did not know that you could actually click on the 'new' button, so big thanks from me too, Rainha!
I didn't say anything in Kai's first thread because I didn't want to be seen as dogpiling, and I was worried that Kai was feeling unwelcome. I have to 'fess up though, and say that my heart sank when I saw your first post, Kai, with the colour AND the centering. Without the centered text, it's much better.

That IS going to be hard on some people's eyes. I read a screen all day and have bad (unsuccessful LASIK surgery) eyes, which are quite sensitive to light and colour contrast.
I don't want that to sound SS ('Oh, my poor sensitive eeeeeeyes! They trump Kai's right to post the way she wants!'). Personally, I respect your right to post as you wish, although I think Ticia's solution of the signature is fantastic compromise. I just hope that more people don't do it, or I'll probably be put off coming here. (My problem, I know, and just my 2 cents' worth
