Help, help, O Great and Powerful Admins! Can't Post

Most of my post in the RR appears with strike-throughs! No idea why. I copied and pasted it from the word processor on my desktop, and nothing there has strike-throughs.
Is it fixable? Am I hasty

Oh my! [In reply to] Can't Post

LOL, you're not going to believe this...

The culprit was this line:
"Lothlorian does seem to be the catalyst for setting the course{strike]..."

Notice that strange {strike] in there? Actually the { is a [ but if I used the [ you would not see that word, just the strikethrough.

I've sent it into the outer darkness, never to sully your post again. Wink

A Shrike strike? [In reply to] Can't Post

As part of their labor protests, they are randomly shrike-ing through peoples texts, posts, and emails!
Maybe we should meet their demands?

Thank you! And how very odd. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm on Firefox, using Advanced Editor. I didn't think those little coding things worked in that setup. Hmmm.
Thanks so much for the rescue!

Reminds me of the time [In reply to] Can't Post

I texted my brother when I drove into my driveway and found the entire yard full of Grackles. I said "My yard is full of tiny dinosaurs."
They say birds are the direct descendants thereof, so if we don't want them to devolve back into scary, long-legged raptors, we'd better negotiate quickly!

Still some strike-throughs at the end. Is it [In reply to] Can't Post

for a different reason? I can't see any brackets around there, unless it's the parentheses.

As the Professor might say.

There's a murder of shrikes - er, strikes at the very bottom!

Begone, foul dwimmorstrikes! Mad
