It never went away. Any time you have two or more consecutive spaces you run the risk of the dreaded Doomsday Tag (http://www.trygve.com/doomsday.html) showing up. It usually only appears when you modify (or sometimes quote) a post. I typically modify mosts posts I see that have them (like in OldJeepr's Back from Big Bend trip report (http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/your-trip-reports/back-from-big-bend-t9618.0.html).

Thanks Richard.  I saw those tags, and wondered where they came from.  Is there something I should or can do to keep them out?

Don't put more than one space between sentences, etc. Yes, it's a hard habit to break for anyone who's taken a typing class, even if that class was 30+ years ago and didn't "stick"....

Thanks Richard. Actually it was 50+ years ago. I may have to tie up my space bar thumb.
