I read all comments here in the forum, but I'm not replying to every suggestion or question when I don't have anything important to say about it. Regarding your suggestion, while it would be doable, it's currently not planned - then users would ask for a different font for each screen element etc.

Thank you for a sensible reply after all the rubbish put onto the thread by idiots who did not even read what I wrote.
In FAR etc. the same font is used for the command line as for the file list, and I thought it would be nice here, but if you say no, I accept that.

To Petermad,
I am now able to reply.
On re-reading the comments I found one very short one that I had overlooked, and that one was indeed sensible and to the point. It answered someone else's comment correctly. It was yours.
If you feel that I insulted you, please accept my humble apologies and forgive me.
Your `link' is wrong, the word used does NOT mean `mad' or `evil' but just `stupid'. I am not responsible if you, not I, call yourself `mad' (Peter `mad').

I am not sure if this is another insult or not?

Certainly not! You posted a link which explained a certain word as meaning evil or very mad. The link is wrong, the word (I will not repeat it, you know what it is) does not mean that, it means stupid, and I had to correct it. It is possible that others did not notice the link which was in the form of a tiny icon.
If you call yourself (Peter) mad you must expect people to make jokes about it, no harm meant. It was you, not I, who used that description, and as it matched the link you sent I commented that it was not me, that was all.

Link? What link?
Did you mean well known How To Ask Questions The Smart Way?
Or maybe some specific parts of that howto? For example:
* Don't flag your question as “Urgent”, even if it is for you
* Courtesy never hurts, and sometimes helps
* On Not Reacting Like A Loser

Or maybe some Wikipedia article: Hanlon's razor?

@petermad
Maybe you should use nick in 8.3 format, more like Korean? ;-)
I know it's not my monkey business, but I couldn't resist.

To Usher. The link will not reproduce here. I tried to copy-paste. A tiny icon at the end of Petermad's post of 17/6 which when hovered on says ‘evil or very mad'. You probably did not notice it, it is very tiny indeed. Look again.

zenx,
That is not a link, that is the standard "alternate text description" for the emoticon image, for blind people who use screen readers so they know what the image is about.

Here is how it looks im my browser - maybe that can help zenx to understand my previous confusion: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/evil-mad.png - and his mistake.

Maybe I should just had used: :(
