There has not been an update to RootsChat, but there have been some tweaks made to disable the font and size functions. I hadn't considered that this was a function that was widely used on the site, unfortunately.  :-\

This tweak was as a result of people (from a place where Green Curry and Red Curry comes from) trying to post spammy topics with links. They were managing to avoid being detected by pretty cunning use of font sizes and colours - so the posts looked essentially fine (but not from the search engines).

So to protect you and use all, we will keep these measures in place for the mean time to assess if this stops. Once we see that it calms down then we can look into trying to put these back on again.

All the best,
Trystan

PS I've locked this topic just so that it doesn't grow arms and legs and so that it doesn't get picked up by the you-know-who persons we are trying to trip up.
