One big problem with these boards (indeed, with far too many web sites I've seen) is that they use the American date format (mm/dd/yy). Come on people -- this is the World Wide
Web, not the USA web, hence International format (yyyy-mm-dd; a.k.a. ISO Format, a.k.a. The Format Formerly Known As Japanese) is the only
one which makes sense to use here, as shown by this thread
American format is probably the worst
one to use, as it's exclusive to the Americas, hence used by only about 10% of the world population (if indeed even that much).
