    Nice idea but the result would be an endless stream of "Why did it change the words in my post to xxxx?" threads, which we'll all end up making sarcastic replies to, the original poster will get narky and m0rk will be wearing out banning sticks at a rate of one a month.

    No reason not to try it, though... :)

    You could always close posting in the Mk1 Leon/older mark Ibiza folders to users that been registered for less than a year or have less than 1000 posts.

    Youngsters (yes I'm sorry but I have to say txt speak is a product of age) are less likely to own MK2 Leons etc so you should not have a problem with posts in those folders.

    But then they'll post in those forums because they're annoyed at not being allowed in the MK1 Leon and older Ibiza forums. ;)

    case in point someone looking for a roll cage for an ibiza that was so badly typed it was moved to other VAG .just because the poster was ..............................................................sorry can't be assed

    I sometimes feel *sorry* (not the correct word , but you know what I mean) for you guys.. reading something like this reminds me of the crap mods have to deal with on a daily basis..
    rest assured 'some of us' appreciate what your doing

    It being changed to a "*" by itself just makes the text look funny, perhaps one words that change to a "*" it could be like the ad words and have so pop up saying,


    "Either swearing or text speak - either way don't do it again!"


    Just my 2p added to the pot :)

    I'm guessing that I've upset someone by not being able to receive PMs now :whistle:

    Not just your PM box is full ??

    It only allows 30 pm's (including what is in your saved / sent / inbox / outbox)

    As Tam says, your PM box is either full or your trying get a PM from someone who can't send/receive PM's like a Newbie

    PM sent, Dan.

    What's this got to do with the decline in forum standards..... or maybe it's relevant. ;)

    I've also sent one. Nothing appears to be wrong with your account. You cold always try logging out, clearing your history and cache. Then login again.
