Edit. Removed all the quoted material.

Redact?

What should I redact?

What would I not wish every member to have access to?

And, where are these "simple graphic engines"?

And, what does this mean? --> "Removed all the quoted material."

The others explained it, but I still feel I should speak up since it was my own error.

Yes, I was suggesting you might want to blot out your email address in the screenshot. But I didn't want to type that term as I didn't want to invite a third party to notice, if someone had the means to scrape the database.
I am a proponent of giving access to only what is needed to solve the speakers problem. No one needed to be able to see your email address to address, or understand, your issue.


I misspoke when I wrote simple graphics engine. I meant to write simple graphics editor. But yes, basically paint or gimp.

When I replied, I forgot to prune away all the irrelevant material that passed between you and Drashner1, so I went back and erased it from my reply as a courtesy. The last line was to indicate that I had done so. It wasn't an instruction for you.

As I said above, I wanted to incorporate some obscurity, as I didn't want to point a proverbial neon sign at the very element I thought you might want to hide, but obviously I failed to make it comprehensible. That happens. I blame low blood-caffeine levels.
