    Dear Tdol

    Mr. Editor:

    I noticed that you wrote in one thread that "posts start sliding off the page quite quickly."

    Would you please tell this computer illiterate what those words mean?

    THANK YOU

    P.S. I could not ask this question in that thread, for it was closed.

    Re: Dear Tdol

    Many people in forums look at the latest post and may click back a few pages, but usually not many. Other ways of navigating include searching. In search engine result, the majority don't go beyond the first page- and how many reach page 10? The What's New page changes so fast, and while sections move less swiftly they can also change daily.

    A post like Old Gobbo's, which I would want to look at over a period of days so it's easier to PM me rather than have me going back trying to remember words from the text to search for.
