Maybe I missed something, but I can't email someone directly by clicking o their name. Is this the LOSS of a feature, or was it done for a reason. Is their something I need to do to allow my computer to allow direct emailing?

Members have to choose "yes" on the "always show my e-mail address" option under their profile in order for others to have access to their e-mail address.

No - even if they choose 'yes', you cannot bring up their E mail address by clicking on their name in a post they wrote. You can only reach their E mail (via their 'Profile') when you see their name in an index - such as on the main 'Discussions' page, or the list of all the threads within a section. It's quite odd - and rather impractical - that it's arranged this way.

So, while it's not really a loss of a function (it's more like a loss of half a function), it is a loss of practicality. Not being able to adjust the size of the very tiny font through IE settings IS the loss of a function - a rather significant function. As I re-read what I'm typing here, I can't tell the periods from the commas, everything is so bloody small.
