I don’t read from Bottom to TOP !!!

Why are we now getting the forum strings running from the bottom to top ?

The initial message is posted then the very next reply is actually the latest response, if I was Chinese (who read bottom to top right to left ) it might make some sense. I expect to see the next comment right after the initial posting ! Why this change.

NB with my Chinese comments has anyone noticed how all the games in the playrooms at the bottom are Asian hosts ?? Do they instinctively go to the bottom as the start… curious hey ?

That's so true! Isn't it curious?! I always notice that, and it's really something I can't understand. Are they ashamed, thus choosing the bottom. Or, perhaps this is more likely, they don't want the predominant number of gamers (those who speak languages other than their own) to join their games. Hopefully, in their minds, the other gamers would find a game to their liking before they make it down to the bottom.

I love pets, 'cause they taste so darn good!

Hi, Steve. Long time no see. Again, I think your scenarios are terrific and thanx for your comments on mine. If you don't like the order the posts are shown in, click on "prefs" at the top of the page and change them.

I talked with a few Asian friends of mine here. They do that because they speak Chinese in written English, so people (even Chinese themselves) that don't know how to read the English-ized Chinese won't have a clue. This "English-ized Chinese" can also include a lot of street talk and swears...

Steve Ryan,

Change your preferences. There is a choice to read last message first, just click no

that should make the replies more readable.

Hi again, Steve.
As I said in my post #2 of this thread (down near the bottom ), I agree with Scarab's advice in Post #4, which will be nearer the top until you change your preferences, after which my Post #2 will be nearer the top than his Post #4, or even this Post #5, which is again mine. Clear?
BTW, I had originally thought the new post display order was specially-designed to meet the needs of you folks from Down Under. Guess not, though.
