I was trying to send a comment to 1Funny.Com earlier "yesterday" (as it is 4
AM PST) the following morning . and was addressing an issue that I was
having BIG problems with . in JUST THEIR SITE ..   The problem I was having
was, I thought at the time, simple - but NOW . I'm more lost and more
confused than ever before . feeling like I'm in a forest, that has fences
all around the circumference . and no way in or out . and I need help .
PLEASE?

 

I'M NOT A GEEK; I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT COMPUTERS; JUST A 'LONELY HOUSEWIFE'
HAVING PROBLEMS, ALONG WITH 4 SPINAL SURGERIES, PREVENTING ME FROM WORKING
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS ., AND THEN TODAY, I GOT THE "FINAL STRAW" ON THIS
COMPUTER SITE . 

 

I ENTERED MY EMAIL TO THEM AT 1.FUNNY.COM . I PUSHED "SUBMIT" . MY SUBJECT
MATTER BEING THAT EVERTHING THAT CAME UP ON THEIR SITE HAD A 'RED "X"'
INSTEAD OF A PICTURE . ALTHO THE TEXT COMES THROUGH FINE .. AND WONDERING
'WHY" OR "WHAT I COULD DO" . EXPLAINING I WAS NO LONGER A SUBSCRIBER TO
THEIR SITE BECAUSE OF ALL MY BACK SURGERIES, BUT HAVING BEEN A SUBSCRIBER
FOR 2 YEARS PRIOR, AND NEVER HAVING PROBLEMS . AND WAS MY PROBLEM THE SIMPLE
FACT I WAS NOT A SUBSCRIBER" . 

 

I PUSHED SUBMIT . AND THEN CAME UP WITH THE FOLLOWING PAGE:

THE BOTTOM OF THE SITE WAS THE 'BOX' WITH W3C; XHTML 1.0 . AND I CHECKED IT,
COMING UP WITH 'YOUR SITE" . AND GETTING MORE FRUSTRATED AND CONFUSED!  

This is WHY I'm writing the "friendly people of validator ." by pressing on
the link for an e-mail going directly to "someone at your organization . to
HELP me . 

In searching your site, every word (except the common words for "normal
people") confused me even more, and I'm serious - TEARS ARE RUNNING DOWN MY
CHECKS . AS I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO . WHERE TO GO, OR HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS
.. NOT EVEN 'YOUR SITE" . AS I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT ANY OF IT MEANS . 

CAN YOU HELP ME - PLEASE? 

I have Windows XP, SP1 . I have never installed SP2 as I keep reading about
ALL the problems connected with SP2 . so I'm afraid of it . it's a "generic
computer" - but a new "C" "Seagate" Hard Drive, 520 MG of memory (or
whatever) . and that's about ALL I know . I have installed JAVA and for
other "picture" and story/cartoon sites, I have no problems . but suddenly
with 1 Funny.Com . I have nothing BUT problems . as I receive text, no
pictures, just "red X's" . and nothing else . 

When running a page referring to HTTP .. I came up with the validation code
for 1Funny.Com . instructing me to put it as a bookmark, and I don't even
know what or where bookmarks are .. And it SOUNDS as though YOUR site THINKS
I AM 1FUNNY.COM . and I'm NOT . 

I'm the "receiver", "sender", "subscriber" (although not subscribed) . I'm
just "me" . in an email address . a person .. not a corporation . 

Please help me . PLEASE!  

THANK YOU .

PLEASE HELP ME!
