    ;) A lol is there, but I am concerned that changing the words in peoples text messages, even for the sake of security, could be grounds for copyright infringements. Disclaimers or agreements may not stand for papers and articles posted with permission from the authors. That does not give permission to change the content of legitimate material. There are very strict measures about changing the authored contents for any reason. Is there no other way to do this?

    Thank you to Paul for alerting us to this issue! I just sent an e-mail via Yahoo for program help. I was able to alter my contents so it would make sense to me and to them without Yahoo's Security Text Editor interfering. Their replacements would make a hash of it. ;)

    Blush! Can I print this off and frame it, and use it as a job reference please? :)
     
  11. Yes..but that and a five pound note would not get you a bottle of good liqour unless you were sitting in my place..or a job unless you ran accross one of my relatives over there ;)

    We could start pitching Wilders.org and the forum to Symantec on a commission basis for Paul just to see if they have any money left. :D You compose the letter and I will hand carry it in.

    Now I am not suggesting he would sell out..but we could pick up a nice bit of change. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    But we could start a transfer market, like they do in football.

    Blaze - bids over $1,000,000 considered
    Checkout - free transfer
    Spy1 - $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    Unicron - a six pack of beer + $10M
    FanJ - Not For Sale

    :)
