need help!!!

I am very computer ignorant. What I wish to do is not difficult or all the other people could not have accomplished it. What I want to do is add to the bottom of my posts(I may not agree with what you say but will defend to my death your right to say it.-T Jefferson)

What do I need to do in order to edit my posts? Many thanks in advance.

go to "User CP" and look for "edit signature" in the left hand column.

You may want to look into that quote more carefully. In a few minutes of googling, it seems some people claim Jefferson said (or wrote) it, but that he was quoting Voltaire. Unfortunately, Voltaire doesn't seem to have written it either.

One possibility for a source is on Voltaire's wikiquote page:
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

* Though these words are regularly attributed to Voltaire, they were first used by Evelyn Beatrice Hall, writing under the pseudonym of Stephen G Tallentyre in The Friends of Voltaire (1906), as a summation of Voltaire's beliefs on freedom of thought and expression.
* Another possible source for the quote was proposed by Norbert Guterman, editor of "A Book of French Quotations," who noted a letter to M. le Riche (February 6, 1770) in which Voltaire is quoted as saying: "Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write" ("Monsieur l'abbé, je déteste ce que vous écrivez, mais je donnerai ma vie pour que vous puissiez continuer �* écrire"). This remark, however, does not appear in the letter.
“The egg hatched...” “...the egg hatched... and a hundred baby spiders came out...” (blade runner)
“Who are you?” “A friend. I'm here to prevent you from making a mistake.” “You have no idea what I'm doing here, friend.” “In specific terms, no, but I swore an oath to protect the world...” (continuum)
“It's a goal you won't understand until later. Your job is to make sure he doesn't achieve the goal.” (bsg)
