Just curious,, when reading some posts, I see that some don't "fit" in my reading area. I need to use the arrows at the bottom to scan from side to side to read the post. Just wondering what causes this. I have also had this happen on other sites. Thanks in advance...

Usually a big picture causes the problem

Could be, but more likely too MANY pictures in a post is the culprit, since there is a 100K size limit for JPGs here.
It bugs me too..... but like so many other things in life, I learn to just deal with it.

Try increasing the resolution of your display.
Depending on monitor size, and your vision, using the highest res your monitor can display will produce the best results.

Personally, I solved the problem by replacing my old 20" monitor with a 24" wide screen.
