I really wanna know though how in the world to you type upside-down letters
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

ask Deacon Nikolai, he is probably the one doing it.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Propaganda aside, find the menu option in any browser for "character encoding" and you can select that.  You do NOT need to change browsers. 

And really, what purpose does upside down tagging serve other than amusing Nick and being an eyesore?

Thanks George. At least for the second comment anyway. BTW did you see my reply to you at http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,11725.msg178035.html#msg178035? I thought you might like that one, since I said you were right and all.  ;D

I didn't see it, but someone from "another forum" emailed me and told me you had quoted me there.
I simply assumed the pot was being stirred.  ;)
I wonder if it's too late to implement my suggestion for dealing with upside-down tags etc:
Must be the work of Halloween witches. Let's burn someone at the stake.
Do moderators have the authority to do this, I wonder? :D

Nope, I think you brought up a legit point that should be discussed in depth. Of course it seemed to kind of dead after I had suggested such things.
