    HEY! Whoever is doing it, STOP PLAYING WITH THE WIDTH OF THE THREADS!

    No one wants to have to scroll back and forth in order to read a post.

    Thank you very much.

    No wide threads on my screen.


    Your net access may be suffering from a broadband overage.

    Elizabeth, New Jersey, when my mother was being raised there in a flat over her father’s grocery store, was an industrial port a quarter the size of Newark, dominated by the Irish working class and their politicians and the tightly knit parish life that revolved around the town’s many churches, and though I never heard her complain of having been pointedly ill-treated in Elizabeth as a girl, it was not until she married and moved to Newark’s new Jewish neighborhood that she discovered the confidence that led her to become first a PTA “grade mother,” then a PTA vice president in charge of establishing a Kindergarten Mothers’ Club, and finally the PTA president, who, after attending a conference in Trenton on infantile paralysis, proposed an annual March of Dimes dance on January 30 – President Roosevelt’s birthday – that was accepted by most schools.

    Thank you, but I have confirmed the "wide screen" effect with several others. Also, I have a home computer and a work computer. It happens on both.

    It doesn't happen all the time - it seems to come and go. Perhaps you just weren't tuned in when it was happening.

    This problem has happened on other message boards I have belonged to. When it happened there, it was generally felt that someone with an exceptionally large (wide) sig pic was causing it, i.e., once they posted on a thread, it automatically expanded the width of the thread to accommodate their big-ass sig pic, thereby forcing all of the posts on the thread to become just as wide and necessitating the scroll-left, scroll-right technique in order to read the entire post(s).

    I don't see that happening here. I have checked several of the wide threads and found no extra-wide sig pic.

    Wide pics and wide words will do it sometimes. It's just the page that the wide post is in that will get wide.

    Here...I'll give you a row of xxx movies:
