    Word Count and Bullet Pints

    Hi,

    So, I have noticed some very lengthy posts that have very lengthy replies and the trouble I run into in my own replies is the word limit and I have to split everything up. Why does the software 'apparently" count the quoted post in a reply, and is there a way around that?

    Secondly, how do we make bullet points?

    Thanks

    The more text you post, the less chance that people read it. Itís the nature of the modern internet mind.

    On copies, just use the ďselect allĒ on ipads, and delete paragraphs.

    Bullet points? I donít know.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no way around that. It is what it is, and I have grown to hate the word count, though very rarely. And speaking of long posts, I miss Zyphlin!

    Taco answered this question for you. But...can I fix the typo in your thread title so it says "points" and not "pints"? I am having a very OCD moment...
