You're not alone on the fence. I think quite a few people (including me) are there. I don't have a problem with them, but I wouldn't miss them if that feature disappeared.

Also (and you didn't hear this from me! lol) I have noticed that visitor messages seem to have started to replace karma in many cases. Not that I care a bit about karma! (Oh, okay, I am a shameless karma grabber! But I also love to pass it out!).

Thanks for the info, I'm just soooo tech challenged!

I don't use the internet for storage of documents such as recipes. I always download them to a MS Word document and save it on my hard drive and back up. That way I have them available to me when there is no internet access. Also, I can format them to my standard format in larger type so it's easier to read.

Another question - if there's no point in replying to someone who posts a query on my profile by posting the reply on my profile, why am I even able to do that?

You can't do that anymore. We realized it was confusing so its not there anymore.

I'm a bit confused too. I hope I didn't mix them up. I have never seen that feature before.

Andy M - That is what I do as well. At the moment, I have a time problem. Work has been very slow and I finally have some. As soon as I get some of it done that is to happen.

Thanks for this, I'm a doofus and have been replying to people on my own page.

Even though I understood how the visitor page worked, I still would accidentally post to it so thanks for removing the box from our own pages. It will help us all.
