    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Who told you that? You might limp for a while but eventually you'll walk the same as you always walk. And any swelling you have is going to go away.
