Hi and welcome! Just a tip: if you click on User CP (top left) and go into your settings, you can set your default page reading view to 40 posts per page. This means less clicking thru to the next page - and that makes reading long threads much easier!
The world opens up... when you do.
Oh, oh, can't you see? Love is the drug for me. ~Bryan Ferry
"Love is that condition in which another person's happiness is essential to your own." ~Robert Heinlein
