    see that post, notice how it looks like i have a really bad typing style, well i have edited it over and over and over again but to no avail. Its bunching the words together and nothing i seem to do helps it?

    Had noticed that on a few other people's posts, just thought that they'd forgot where the space bar is. Strange.

    Wonder if it's the words used, as I know EP's been playing with filters.

    Guess not. EP will have to look into it then.

    I saw this problem when someone quoted one of my posts. There was no problem with my original post, but a number of spaces got stripped off in the quoted version.
    Haven't seen the problem since then.

    Looks fine to me. Well, theres a couple of spaces missing, is that the problem?

    *edit*
    Oh, I see more now :)

    X-istence may have found the cause, but solving it will take a little bit of work.

    Oh, I just thought I was demented.... I type with only my thumbs anyway.
    Maybe I'm not so stupid.

    It's to do with collasion defaults and the fact we didn't have any.
    So now we are latin and swedish.
    an interesting combination, makes me think of promiscious blondes ala caligula.
    I need to get out more.

    That didn't make any sense to me. Except the word swedish. ;)

    But yeah, the forum is eating spaces like crazy, now I can't even correct it after editing, it just eats them again.

    I went in and edited it. (hope that was O.K.?)Looks fine now. :suprised:

    Don't know what it could have been, but just a quick edit on my part and it came out fine.

    [edit]
    Could it be a keyboard problem? Or is it only happening here on the forums?

    Strange that I have never had this problem. And if it was something within the vBulletin wouldn't it happen to all?

    I thought it was at first, but then more people noticed it and now whenI edit and add spaces, they go away as soon as I press space (well,some of them anyway, to make things more confusing!).

    But then again it's not in all posts either...

    [edit] Notice the "whenI" and ",some".

    prime example ^ "postin" = post in
    and "it,more" = it, more

    I don't see any of the bunching going on. Am I just weird, or is it the fact that I'm the only one left using IE6.0? (I forgot where I put my Mozilla.)
