Faded letters 'w' and 'v' in posts.

Anyone else notice this. The letters 'w' and 'v' are faded out in the posts I am reading. First noticed a few months ago. No big deal just curious as to why.

Must be your computer, Jim. They look OK here. Maybe you need to replace the 'w' and 'v' symbols in your monitor........

You have overworked your VW posts.

Your computer is probably running low on electrons; as a test, pull the plug out of the back of the computer and take a peek inside to see how many electrons are still in there.
