Are you sure? Seems awfully good looking and not quite grumpy
enough. And I think I saw a few teeth too.
Next you are going to tell me this is him in his younger years:
The problem is because the text in *your* posts wont wrap lines properly
when getting replied to. It sometimes helps to highlight your text and
manually select "Wrap Selected Lines" when making a reply to one of your
long drawn out posts.
I guess you must not have noticed, but it's only your part of his replies
that are "scrambled", so you're barking up the wrong tree. It has been
mentioned before about your little broken ChromeBook. Or perhaps you just
don't know how to tell it where to wrap lines? OR, possibly your
ChromBook doesn't give you that ability?
You don't seem to understand, it was *YOU* that was whining about the
scrambled posts, not me. Your text wraps just fine when reading them,
it's only when someone replies to your posts that *your* lines don't
wrap. I generally use "wrap this line" as a courtesy to others when I
reply to you. So, just to please you I'll refrain from that practice in

AFAIK GG does not have a "wrap this line" feature that users can select and
apply to text. Users must manually shorten their lines with a CR to stay
within the 70ish(?) character limit that the other posts seem to use.
For example, I forced carriage returns in the paragraph above, but I will n
ot use them in this paragraph. In the paragraph above I used carriage retur
ns after 'and' and 'stay' "as a courtesy", to use your words. GG does wrap
these lines at the right edge of the text entry field as users are typing,
so it *looks* wrapped to GG users as we type, but as we have seen, the line
s do not wrap once posted. (At least that is what I believe will happen whe
n I click post when I am done.)
(OK, back to forcing CR) The main issue with forcing CR "as a courtesy"
presents itself when users want to edit a previously written paragraph. If
we want to add or delete words from a paragraph with CR's, the wrapping get
all messed up because GG will force wraps where we don't it. The user then
has to go back and delete/reinsert CR's where required. I try to do that
"as a courtesy" but it is a major pain. In addition, if the user (me) isn't
sure if they remember to use CR after every line, then they have to go back
and insert one at the end of each line in order to find out. I just went
through that whole editing process in this paragraph and it's really time
typing, so it *looks* wrapped to GG users as we type, but as we have seen, the lines do not wrap once posted. (At least that is what I believe will happen when I click post when I am done.)
This isn't a new issue. I just think UM is putting blame where it's not
deserved. And then he tells everyone else to put him in their kill-file
if they don't like the results of his quoted text getting scrambled and
not attributed properly.

ll not use them in this paragraph. In the paragraph above I used carriage r

I can't speak to the "quoted text getting scrambled and not attributed
properly" issue. I have not experienced the issue in question nor
have I seen it happen with my posts. Maybe it is but no one has complained
so maybe UM is actually putting the blame where it belongs. I can't say.
