    I was, of course, joking. Having Comic Sans in your font list is a lot like having nuclear weapons. You don't use yours because the enemy also has it. It's a shame nobody told teachers this.

    If the tile of the thread was 'Article: we are now running vbulletin 4.1.4 as described by Comic Sans' I wouldnt have read it!! Talk about going off at a tangent.

    Noooooo! Bring it back. I have now lost the final measure of degrading actions for idiots who post.
    Stage 1 - explain things in small words
    Stage 2 - explain things ironically
    Stage 3 - use sarcasm
    Stage 4 - repeat their last post but in Comic Sans just to show that you have to go to an extreme to make their words look even stupider!

    I have yet to use it but I hate to think of the alternatives. Possibly interpret their post in a modern jazz dance or perhaps get it read out by a reality TV star!

    Eerrmm I was merely following the comment made by DB and others. I suppose a grammar and spell checker would be more useful for some folk though

    I don't know if this is a site problem - I suspect not, but since this change, in ONE of my schools my replies appear on the right hand side and slowly move left as I type!!
