    George, I am glad you were able to fix it. As to what did it, all I can say is that I attempted to insert some comments inside of a quotation from the #1 post in the thread. I used red characters to have the comments stand out from that quoted text but then I decided to copy the quotation flags that enclosed that original post to show how it was broken by my insertions. I think I may have placed one of those copies in the wrong place, creating either a double start of a quotation or a double end to one. I have successfully done this before, but apparently one must be very careful with these mark-ups.

    I see part of my comments were copied by in an answer, but that is all that is left of my post. I will not be trying to duplicate it. I'll just leave well enough alone.

    It was probably started by someone who is on the ignore list.... that would do it.

    What is odd is that NOBODY is on the ignore list

    Not sure I follow. Is this a separate thread from the RPC thread? Where is it showing and what list is it that it's not showing on?

If it takes a few days for George to fix it, that's fine, it won't matter in the grand scheme of things. I'm just bouncing ideas and learning right now.

    I appreciate all the help though. Thanks!
    My concern is that it may corrupt the forum database, and mess up more things. Evidently the software did something it ought not to have done.

    My apologies to all for this.

    And shouting in my best 7 year old's voice: "MOMmmm..........Paulie broke the interrr--nettt !!! ...........

    Flagging does not work, adding posts does not work, although after trying to do so, the display became "more normal". I tried it again in case it would become "even more normal", but as I expected, it did not.

    I can not open my thread to edit it. I will try again, but I don't think I will be able to correct it.

    George! Oh George! Help please!

    I clicked on the last post (page 2) and the page opened. From there I clicked on page 1 and it opened as well. Simply clicking the first page first did NOT work, so there's something wonky with the database. To me it looks visible okay back to front.

    Agree. Last post by Lakeside does not appear. Paul A's post seems to have killed it.
