We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

I always type the thing out and then habitually press send on the completely incorrect assumption that for once I will have assembled a well constructed and error free post. That I do this is of course entirely my own fault and no criticism was intended - at least not one that ultimately doesn't boil down to my own lack of care in the first place.

I know from past experience that if I re-read a section of my text days or sometimes months after penning it I notice spelling mistakes or clumsy constructions or omitted words or whatever that in all probability would have escaped me at the time. That I recognise there is a tendency on my part to read what I think I've written not what I've actually written is something I've come to accept; it's just that the facility to edit at any stage after posting would allow me to satisfy my wish not to betray my own inadequacies any more than is necessary.
