But given the reason that you might want to print a thread, I thought an image would be better since text can be altered so easily and therefore be of little or no value.
Hans, well, I was going on the assumption that the person saving or printing the information had already decided that it was of value to keep and simply wanted to save the text for future reference.
You are right, any web page text can be edited off-line. But, you could also edit the page then take a picture of it later serving no good purpose for record keeping.
But for that matter, given the anonymity of the posters in online forums, you have to take everything you read with a grain of salt or shot of vodka anyway
I usually prefer published books for information as an author stands behind it. But, people's opinions can be useful as well.
