What's the deal with this new thread-posting mechanism? Why is the background black? Where are the formatting thingies? Am I supposed to use HTML? But I'm afraid I'll do it wrong and my tags will show and it will be embarrassing. Ugh. This is why I stick to commenting. I apologize if this has been discussed elsewhere and/or I am just a giant technically challenged idiot. ETA: I can't add pictures to this main post - please see the screenshot in my replies below. I think my editor is just broken.
