I have started seeing � appearing in messages where there are apostrophes ' and quotes ".

Oddly, they do not appear in my posts.


What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

I noticed that today too. I do not know if it was with more than one poster. In the past this was at times caused by people cut and pasting text. Maybe posters are composing in a word or text editor and the pasting to the forum?

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I see it's happening in Phat's signature.
