Post starting with blanks removed.

A reply I just made to a post started with blank white space to
show someone some long division.
But the space characters were removed many times in a row as
I tried to fix the problem, so I put in a period at the beginning of post.
Here's the example.

I've seen this happen maybe 3 other times in the past couple of years.

Re: Post starting with blanks removed.

Yes, that's happened to me a couple of times as well. I usually fix it by just writing a sentence before I start doing whatever I wanted to be doing that involved a lot of spaces.

It'd be a good thing to change though.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Normal behaviour ... just "trimming" blanks, mathsy's solution is good.
