Re: Just curious

Why are the grayed out 'Ignored Fool Yap' lines in twice the font size of all other messages?

Re: Beware Placing Market Orders

Hey, I just got a notice that I have a $6.03 credit at Amazon, a result of a class action due to price-fixing for e-books. But in order to use it I have to spend it at Amazon, where nothing cost $6.03.
