Apparently if someone posts messages using any of the normal features that are part of phpBB (such as Bold, Font Size, Italic, Underscore, etc.) then Mark Townsend takes it upon himself to modify that posting to his own particular way of doing things.
If people are NOT going to be allowed to use these features, then there should be some form of RULES and GUIDELINES established, or even better, just change what this forum is allowed to use within the phpBB application. The latter would mean less "administrative" modifications of people's postings (or maybe it is just some people that have this done to them).
I would have thought a topic for RULES and GUIDELINES of postings would have been established before starting a forum, instead of going in afterwards to change what people do.
