Highlighting, bolding, underlining and typing in caps are ways to bring "special" attention to postings.

Indeed, typing in all caps is considered to be yelling and blocks of colored fonts can be hard on the eyes; so avoidance is a matter of courtesy too.

Generally people follow a forum standard as a matter of good principle, rather than going against the grain and thereby suggesting/implying that their posts are more worthy of consideration than those of others.

Bottom line - no don't think he was being too touchy - was giving good advice.

Thank you! I've been wanting to tell MilPro this for days and, as a relative newcomer to this forum, didn't really feel it my place to mention something like that.

In the interest of self-moderation, it is being taken care of.

I'm sorry to have caused such confusion. No more colored font.

I told him in PMs two weeks ago in an attempt to avoid him being called out in public. Alas, it was to no avail.

It's not so much confusing as it is annoying. Usually when you see colored font it's your cue to say "oh snap, this must be important I better pay attention to what this says." Then when you read it and it's another post you eventually start to think, oh it's that green font again...eh, I'm skipping it this time...out of spite.

I'll decide whether your posts are worth taking seriously or not. If you try and tell me that it's important with green font, I'll eventually get tired of reading it and not read it at all.

Let's tell it like it was.

You asked why I used it. I explained why.

I asked you if you wished me to cease using it and you said no.

I thought that was the end of the issue for you.

Next time, be a little more specific about what you want, and I'll do my utmost to make you a happy poster.

And that, sir, is your privilege.

As long as it's a readable font and color, I don't care what it is. Comic sans in bright blue - that is a bit annoying. Green is no big deal for me.
