    Default Re: about "who" and "that" in starting the attributive clause.

    When I am answering a question, I write normally. When I am commenting on forum issues, I change the colour. Instead of using bold or something bright, I prefer to use a lighter colour as it's less intrusive, but different. If I wrote like this or this, it might come across as nagging. I have no idea how widespread the practice is, but I imagine some other people will do the same.

    I thought of doing this when I wanted to address my comment in Facebook to specific person where people give comments for photo.
