    Oftentimes someone will quote a post containing bold or italic or perhaps bold italic (fancy) text and thanks to the shortening that occurs the end code is cut out thereby leaking into the post in general.

    An example is my post here : http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=23573&page=7

    I didn't catch it until after the hour had passed. Can something be done so this doesn't keep happening?

    If you don't want your text bold you can enter a "/b" enclosed in brackets before your text. I tried to do it here but the brackets took action and were not shown. :-(
