Default Page format again

I've come to ignore it when the format is really skewed, because usually it resolves itself soon. This time, no. The main page is all lopsided -- super-wide in parts, and has persisted this way. Usually that means that one person has decided to make a super-wide signature (thank you) or that someone has created an absurdly long thread title. Any ideas, folks?
Thanks.

It was the thread title with periods in place of spaces. Very annoying.

Thanks, 'Catholic.' Why would anybody do that? I don't understand, I guess. Why deliberately be annoying (if so)?

Greetings to the OP and Catholic90,

I had that problem with the CAF being lopsided as well. I am glad to see that it went back to being normal.

Perhaps the OP of that thread does not know any better, has anyone sent a PM to the poster?

God bless.

You know, I almost did. I finally located the thread, but I was busy with other conversations. (That's my excuse, anyway. ) I'm sure the OP would appreciate the information, since the posts are the same punctuation style as the thread title.

Greetings Elizabeth502,

Perhpas instead sending a PM to him, perhaps notifying a Moderator would be best in this situation. I do not feel as if my opinion counts for anything because I am such a new member and all, but perhaps if a Moderator was notified, they could handle it with discretion and prevent this problem from occuring here in the forums.

God bless.

I was on that thread. The OP had no working space bar so used periods to separate words.

A poster there had a great idea. Control v an existing space in any random sentence and then Control c to paste at the end of each word in the OP's own posts.

like this and this. Works great

Greetings MIriam1947,

That is good to know. IT seems to be quite a lot of work just to read the posts by this poster. I tried that, and I could not get it to work. Do you mind telling me what to do step by step, because I am not good with the control letters.

God bless.

You copy an existing space (you can do this by selecting a space and then pressing Control C for copy), then you can paste that space wherever you need it using paste (which is control V for paste).

That's backwards, I'm afraid.

Ctrl-C will copy the highlighted space

Ctrl-V will paste it.

Some computers have "on screen keyboards" which may help out, too.

Yes, you are right. That is a moderator job.

But, there are occasions when someone will post and they forget that paragraphs are our friends. This is almost impossible for me to read.

So I hit the quote button and then start with the return button so I get some resemblance to paragraphs. Sometimes I post that and make it clear that paragraphs are our friends and other times I just want to be able to read it for myself. (Yes, I know I am selfish, I'm working on it)
