    Recently I have started to notice that in some of my post a few to several words are changed to the color red.
    I have mostly noticed this with the words "iPod touch" and "iTouch" although it's not only those select words.
    And I am assuming a moderator edited it but some of them don't even say they were edited.

    Anybody experiencing this?
    Car to explain mods?

    don't you normally see red words when you've come from a forum search?
    the red words are highlighted as they were keywords from the search...

    usually anyway..

    Oh... Just check that out.
    I guess your right.
    Thanks for the response.
    I feel stupid now.

    Anybody experience this when not searching?

    hehe.. no worries..

    i guess your text could be red if someone actually changed the colour like so :)

    but then again, if it wasn't you, it must have been someone else..
    did you check your posts to see if any were edited? and if so, was there an edited comment? usually any mods that edit post will write a comment to say why.

    Nah.
    The one that had a thing where it says it has been edited isn't red anymore.
    Although, for some mysterious reason the mod failed to tell why he edited it; I like to know so that in the future I don't make mistakes like that again.

    Just about to do that.
    Should I just do the report thing?
    I've used it a couple times when I just needed something to be modded on a thread.

    Reason for editting is that the part of the post was perpetuating the problem that the thread in question was trying to address.
