Re: NEW FORUM: Post your problems/issues here

No doubt somebody posted something about this and I have not seen it yet.

When viewing the forum on my MacBook there is an annoying line that runs down the middle of every page. When I view on my PC I do not see this line. Am I losing my mind? 'Cause that is a very real possibility.

Best,

I think maybe $75.00 is too much for Life Savers.
