Its funny for about 3.2 seconds, then it gets annoying.

Perhaps the bikeforums maintainers are not computer savvy enough to switch it back at will??

Using your eyes, use your natural ability to avoid distraction within the context of a sentence, and read it.

This is not browser specific btw. Will work universally

But if they're using a Mac then they only have one eye and thus no depth of field vision.

Ack! Normal text as shown in quote boxes really bothers my eyes!

Can y'all add strike-thru in the quotes?

I'm going to buck the trend and say... I *love* the strike through, but hate the llama. On long threads, it's hard to remember who's who, cause they're all llamas

Hey check this. Here's a work around for this annoying strikethrough text. Just put the QUOTE tags around your message and then two random characters outside of the ending quote tag to satisfy the two character minimum message length. A alittle more work but...some may find it worth it.

Hahaha, triumph!

I prefer the galloping bug-eyed alien llama with flamming flatulence as opposed to the previous state of things.

Has it been confirmed that this is in fact a llama, as opposed to... uh... say, some kind of green legged worm thingy?
