When posting a new thread, one clicks in the "subject" box to enter the title of the thread - no news there.

After typing the title, I press the TAB key four times to get to the "message body" field. (I think I press four times; after all these years, the fingers autopilot.) My hands are already on the keyboard, so why take them off just to click with the mouse in the message box so I can continue typing? That's what a stuttered press of the left baby finger is for...

A change implemented in the last day means it takes many more presses to get to the message box, but you get there eventually. In my case, it now takes 22 (!) presses to get to the message box. I suspect using my mouse will speed things up. ;)

Bottom line? I guess I'm here to push a Tabke about having to push my Tab key...

(I'm sorry, but can I be blamed? I'll have the girlfriend spank me tonight...)

Not a problem - we can switch that back.
