    \back-slash\

    Out of nothing but curiosity...why do some people use a \ when writing? I've noticed it on many posts and find it a little strange. (I\'ve found it a little strange.\)Is there a specific reason?

    Use of back-slash is reserved for WN members whose posting have exceeded one-million words. As you approach that lofty number, you will be contacted by the WN moderators, who will arrange for a ceremony--in the venue of your choosing--where you will be inducted into the "One million words I wasted instead of working on my novel" club.

    (There is also a rumor that the back-slash mysteriously appears when cutting and pasting from certain word processors into WN, but don't fall for it.)

    It's our quirky WN software going through its paces. In cyber years it's quite elderly (Donkey Kong-era, don'cha know), and sometimes has episodes; you know, like your Uncle Phil that one time at the wake. Just part of its charm!

    jayce, as long as I've been here, I actually was falling for your explanation, even to the point of quickly posting to see if I was in the "club."

    Yes, I feel like a real idiot...mixed with an odd wonderment of "being in the presence of magic."
