1. Why would you use so many acronyms? Is it really so much more time consuming to write "my son" than "DS"? Just type what you mean people, it's only a few more characters.
2. What is the strikethrough all about?? Every other message seems to include a sentence or two that the poster has inexplicably chosen to apply strikethrough to. Can anyone explain why? Do people really find it witty?

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We are a new business approaching to launch and in the mist of all the excitement we did not take note of Mumnet's general terms.

We thank you for making us aware and can assure you this will not happen gain.

Many thanks

From the Tin & Paper Team
