The Mystery of the Dot


Hello SR techies

I keep noticing since months that some users have a small dot in every message they post in the bottom left corner.
Most users don't have that Mysterious Dot....but I do

An image is worth a 1000 words they say so here we go :



..while most members don't have that Mysterious Dot



Other members with the Mysterious Dot :
Venuscat - JohnCW - time2LLL60 - andyh - ConfusedGuy

I've tried everything possible to get rid of it with no success
(Posting a signature, removing it, posting a white dot etc etc)

I had time to kill on this rainy Sunday so voilą my technical question

Thanks in advance

...dot below?

This isn't our first mysterious dot. It took me forever to find one years ago.
Yours is pretty funny. I don't know if I can find it.

CK, don't worry -- you are not alone. I see them too. The truth is out there!

(I'll leave it up to inscrutable processes whether or not a dot appears under this post.)

Edit your details goto "Help others by sharing the treatment facility....." and select "no". if it's'Yes' and the text box above is blank, you get the dot.

CK, you make me dang proud to be a Canadian.

I remember the "dot" years ago that MorningGlory searched for, I don't remember the resulting answer but I know I cleaned my screen about 5 times a day thinking that was it!

STDragon, you get the detective crown here! How on earth did you figure that out?

Thanks everyone, you all make my day.
