    If they fade, they become less noticeable.
    If they fade away, they eventually disappear.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". You have already clicked on both the "Thank" and the "Like" button. You don't need to do anything else.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Polyester, you need to add a disclaimer to your posts (not a teacher) when you are commenting to other members' posts.
