Needing useful help on the printing problem should have been the sole
point anyone discussed on the general opensuse list, where the
discussion of the trouble with the forum page constituted no more than a
reason for asking for a plan to solve the printing problem itself.

Respectfully, if that's the discussion you wanted, you should have
limited your respective inquiries to the appropriate lists. It's
generally considered bad form to combine multiple queries into a single
message, post the message to multiple venues, and expect the readers to
sort out what you wanted discussed in which venue.

The first step in troubleshooting would be to remove your custom CSS
and see if the output can be reproduced without it. If it can't (which
appears to be the case), then blaming the forums for that particular
display output is going to be seen as disingenuous.

Of course it can't be reproduced without it. It only happens because
it's impossible to get user CSS to work right when it has to fight
against a 150k mountain of site CSS.

Then that should've been the focus of what you were complaining about,
rather than complaining about a self-inflicted problem caused by trying
to work around the display issue. "help forum no help" is antagonistic
and in this instance, unnecessary. Your problem wasn't with the help in
the forums (so far as I can tell) but with the presentation problem that
was self-inflicted with your custom user CSS (whether it is to work
around an issue you've identified and previously reported is not really

With regards to the original printing problem, perhaps start with the
forum post *without* your custom CSS (use a screen magnifier or some
other tool to read the small print) and use that as a starting point.
