    Here are a few more helpful hints for you, The Ria:

    All sentences must end with the correct punctuation mark.

    The forum's default font size is adequate for most purposes.

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed' (Posting Guidelines), so He cried himself to sleep would have been a good title for this one.

    Please post in the normal font size and in black. It gets very confusing if the first post in a thread is written in different colours. The volunteers here frequently use other colours to indicate errors and amendments in our replies.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
