Hey, mate, one little bleeding thing's really been bugging me head from the first day I did a walkabout on your site: The "Newest Posts in our Skeptic Forums" column running down the right side of your front page? The bleeding horizontal lines should bloody well separate items, not divide the items themselves. It's fuck-all bloody confusing, that's what it is. I find meself clicking on a link (such as "[ Read more | 53 reply(s) | From Health ]", only to discover I'd poked a link not for the item within the bleeding lines, but for the bloody item above. It's bloody unintuitive, is what it is, mate. It has meself so confused, I've started talking like I'm a third-rate Yank actor messing up a Crocodile Bleeding Dundee dialect -- and I've never even crossed to the backside of the bloody equator. Bloody Hell.

Please move the horizontal lines on each item down to just above the title of the next item, so the lines divide items from items, rather than items from thembloodyselves. And there you have it, a fair dinkum solution, a page as "intelligently designed" as a roo in bloody Araby, if you get me drift, Bucko.

How about keeping the thin line separating title and content, and a bolder line separating posts?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I totally agree with HalfMooner. I always thought that was a silly feature on this website, but didn't care enough to say anything.

How about keeping the thin line separating title and content, and a bolder line separating posts?

You could do that, but it is unecessary since the titles are already in blue, and have an icon to the left to designate them as titles

I agree with HalfMooner. And I think that Ricky's suggestion is good.
