  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
    problems with your site. It appears as though some
    of the written text in your posts are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks
