They are here from before the new form started. Relax do what I do and don't read the long forms

Recent posts? A lot of posts had their formatting trashed when the forum was converted over to vbulletin awhile back. I've not noticed problems after that.

There are no issues with the <div> on this forum. The ones you do see, as Reefhound stated, was from the old forum. The tags used on the old forum is not compatible with this one. Just try to read through it quickly. :)

It happened if you edited your post, I know that for sure. Back then, and now too I'll make a post and notice I misstated or misspelled something and edited it. Well, that added what then appeared to be a space and the end of a line and when the board converted those spaces were the DIV's you see now. I've edited some of those earlier postings of mine as I came across them, but some I could not edit for some reason.

Nobody new has had this happen unless they included an old posting ina new one.

Most of them are old posts -- and no, we're not going to do a search and replace in the mysql database to get rid of them :)
