To Add a New Subject (Thread)

The "Add a Subject" link is at the end of the list. I get there using Ctl+End and it jumps there.

Before stsrting a new subject it is a good idea to check and see if the subject is already listed. You do this with the search box in the top right corner of the page. Doing this keeps all posts for that subject together.

WARNING: There is a timer on this process and you may get timed out and have to sign in again which may cause you to lose what you have writter. So before you hit the Add button, SAVE it. Then if you have been timed out, you can sign in and post it by pasting the message.

We have no count of "Reads". If you would like the board to have one, please tell AFB by using the feedbackprocess to be found at the bottom of the page.

Oops. I have blown it. That 'example' doesn' t belong here, and how it got here is a mystery. And of course the other response doesn't belong here either.
The original post about a new subject is still good. ===gm===

Here is an example. In opening an account at HSBC I was given a beautifully pepared "Welcome" package of printed material that used tiny type printed in gray ink, the poor contrast making it hard to read and even hard for my CCTV to produce a good immage.
