Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

One of the entertaining things about Notes discussion databases is that the design can be studied, and people can take advantage of the quirks.  Often, this is done to provide clever HTML passthrough on views and that sort of thing, but I like this hack that Joris De Geyndt started using in the Notes/Domino 6 Forum recently.  Look at the top of this recent message I posted:
Inline JPEG image

and one that Joris De Geyndt posted:
Inline JPEG image

I couldn't resist, so I tried as well:
Inline JPEG image

It is only visible in the Notes client, which I actually prefer, as the vast majority of people both won't see it and won't be able to use this hack, which could get quite annoying, I imagine.  Anyway, if you read the Gold forums using your Notes client, see if you notice as, inevitably, more people catch on to this trick.
