Please do not post a reply on it, we just keep bringing it to the top. Leave it until FE removes it.

Lets hope he's been barred. I got his number anyway, JE-KM, and he's gone on the list.

Might be sensible to have a limit on the number of letters in a subject.

AGREED!.....i still think he did it on purpose! though what do you think?

  Graham ® 14:43 04 Oct 2004

Of course!

Still a bit of a puzzle as there's a limit of 26 characters for the thread title - perhaps it's something to do with using all capitals?

Hi I am the one who did it.

I would like to apologise - it was not intentional.

My W key was wedged in, and the cursor key shot off printing more Ws than was neccessary. In a struggle, In a struggle to release my W, the post was submitted.

I looked for a button to remove my thread and couldn't find one, so I left a note inside the thread appologising for disrupting the shape of the webpage.

I am glad that FE has removed it for me, but perhaps we can drop it now, and not call people idiots. This is a mistake that could have happened to anyone, and I am sure people have made posts by mistake before, whether they were too long for the form or otherwise.

"in a struggle, In a struggle "

I am repeating myself a lot today, lol

Don't worry about it. Many people have made the same or similar mistake in the past requiring miles of sideways scrolling. Your not the first and I doubt the last. ;o)

okay - i am sorry for calling you an idiot,i thought it was a wind up,i honestly did think it was funny but it annoyed me a bit,i do believe you,but how is it you managed to do so many "W"s when there is a limit?.and how did you press the submit button?.cheers.ben
