you should take the clear screen out of your ad
I didn't know there was one in there.. I have ran the same ad for years... and now someone somewhere says I have a clear screen in my ad...
I create the ANSI file on the fly with a batch file... I echo in the date and then I follow up with the body of the message... I see no clear screen maybe Mystic tacks it in somewhere or somehow...
BUT it would be better if you configured your software to deal with it..
It's good advice to know what's in your message before you post it.
You never know how an ANSI message is going to look posted on various networked boards. You might think it looks OK on your board, but it may look garbled on everyone else's.
This is specifically why I began shifting all my ads to ASCII.
