Could you please, for the love of all things good, post the odd ramble that doesn't include all of the markup crap?

Seriously... punctuation used properly can portray emphasis all on its own. The whitewash of html-y tags and such detract a reader from actually smoothly reading through each paragraph, and when my eyes get sick of it, they give up. I have to assume I'm not the only one, although I could be wrong.

You've been around a while. When was the last time you read a *good* blog post, or especially a novel that has to emphasize with underlines, bold, italics and other stuff to get the point across? It's distracting, irritating, aggravating and bluntly, just doesn't flow.

    With nothing useful to say, he has to do something to attract attention.

    It's that markup crap, more than the vapidity of the content, that makes me regard that poster as a troll.

    He's mainly talking to himself and maybe some imaginary friends.

    And his audience likes it colorful. .. ;)

    FWIW You could use some CSS to tone down the posts of this particular monk.
