Given the awful grammar used in the request, who would not give it up?

It's amazing people still fall for this kind of stuff. Horrible grammar is usually a big clue its not a legit email.

Guys, highlighting light gray letters in red on a medium dark background does not enhance legibility. It's the opposite.

I think that's the way the forum fonts are set up with the highlight code.

I've not explored which UBB or HTML codes can be used, if any.
