Re: MR WEB GUY WHERE ARE YOU??Thread messages cannot be deleted because it disrupts conversational flow when messages are completely missing.
e.g if person A asks a question and person B answers then person C replies to person B and then person B deletes their message it will look like person C replied to person A or was talking to noone at all as there will be nothing in between - that might be hard to follow but there is method to the madness :)
So instead if you want to 'remove' a message, edit it and put in a short message on why it it was removed, or just a bit of text like <REMOVED> :) this will allow people to know there was something there so they can make sense of the discussion as they read along.

Re: MR WEB GUY WHERE ARE YOU??Please, Mr Web Guy, make the colour of text have enough contrast to be read. Your light blue is bad enough, but today's email has pink or orange in it and I cannot read it at all. I also downloaded the ebook, and cannot read a lot of it. I don't understand why the fashion is to have light text on a white background, but the black text, such as is in your above answer has good contrast and is readable. Please be innovative and make all your stuff be readable to all, not just the very young who might have better eyesight. Thanks.
