This gets my vote for "Most Incomprehensible Post Ever."

They're assuming you're running Windows Explorer. They mean 1. click on view, then source. 2. Search for unclosed tags in source and close them. 3. Submit post.

Try Netscape, works even better.
We have a couple of posters here who really get bent out of shape over unclosed tags. I don't understand why. It's like they felt physical pain reading italics or blockquotes.
F, why wasting thread space with your frustrations instead of simply closing the tag as you see them? You should try on letting go of such non-life threatening frustrating details and not let them get to you, they will cause you a heart attack eventually.

Right on, Chris.
I'm wondering, why go to all that trouble looking for unclosed tags, when this Preview Message site is available and easy to use.
