I've seen this on another vw forum, but just started doing this on thesamba. when entering into the message body, if you go past the initial space in the box, instead of kicking down a line, it's displaying the initial message body only. I can still type, and it jumps down when I type, but as soon as I'm done, it jumps back to the firat part that is displayable. Sorry if thats not clear, it's hard to explain...
I'm on IE 8 at work, Google chrome at home. Issue is on both. It's the DLK VW site I also see this with , their forums are phpbb as well.

I just checked Chrome and it seemed fine for me too.
I hit reply on this thread, and typed a ton of text into the message box so that it started scrolling downward.
I also went into an older post that was super long and typed in the middle and nothing weird happened - the cursor stayed where it was.
A scroll bar appeared and nothing was jumpy or seemed abnormal of different than when I tried Firefox and IE9 above.
One thing that is annoying on a long post is if you go back and, for example, highlight then bold some text in the middle with the B button, the cursor will jump to the end of the text so you lose your place. But it has always worked this way.
