    You're gonna have to be more specific — indent in the first line of a thread view or when you compose a message? Which browser/version/os? A screenshot would help as well.

    This is hard-hitting stuff! I can't wait until freetrader and gilles get stuck in to this debate.

    A "fix" that was put into place for this problem, resulted in a good 5 hours of debugging.

    For the techies, a blockquote was replaced with a span. This resulted in a preg_match failing in a completely different part of the code. The result of this failing preg_match was some pages were taking as long as 3-8 seconds to process (normal page from any of our servers should be delivered under 1 second).

    The delay in processing pages was resulting in some pages stalling.

    Result .. you'll have to live with the indent.
