I find the sig lines and new posts tend to run together. I may just need to get used to it but is there any way to better box in or color one post to delineate one from the next?

There's a way but I personally prefer the "clean" look with no demarcations. But as always (well...maybe not always), the majority will rule here. Opinions?

I think one thing that makes it maybe less easily read is that the font size of some portions is not the norm. For instance, the font size of the typed message is smaller than click tabs like EDIT, QUOTE, and the subject line that shows above each post. In most forums, those things are smaller than here. A resize of that might help if Lake doesn't want to go to the boxed in style.

yes, I would vote for demarcations too. Something to make it easier & quicker to read.

One thing that would make it easier for me would be to, if possible, move the four or five adlines that appear between the end of the last post and the reply button. I find I always have to search for that darned button. Could the ads be moved to the side perhaps?
