Actually, there are such fonts available but they are your typical mono-color text characters (and we’d all need 'em installed to see the text the way the poster meant it).
For my posts, I used a website (there are quite a few, but the Strix Ransom Note Generator did the most) that generates a picture. I screen-capped mine, modded the leading & spacing to make it look more like it was pasted together (I guess I just expect too much), and added them to my download site (now Photobucket) for everyone’s entertainment!
** BTW, I, too, find it helpful to know if someone I’m personally contacting received my message.
** AND, while we’re at it, I would also like to see the last poster of a thread (another feature from the previous forum iteration). I respect certain posters for their knowledge and/or entertainment value and would check a normally skipped-over thread if I saw his name there.
** AND, another old feature, view count, should be added to see how things are going on any particular thread. It’s another indicator that a high number might suggest something there in which I, too, might be interested.
IN SHORT, MORE INFORMATION, NOT LESS, MAKES A FORUM BETTER!
