Oh, yes, thank you, that is exactly what I saw and my reason for suggesting icons and somewhat lengthier descriptions. For some reason, I find the list hard to read and even harder to interpret. It's fairly lengthy and hard to scan visually. Of course I can do it, but in "browsing" mode (mentally) I want to find things quickly. On the internet now days everything is so icon driven that I thought it might be nice to have icons scattered across the page with the word below or through it. Or, perhaps on the side of each message board group you could have a brief description of what that board contains - i.e., discussions of medical conditions, tests, medicines, psychological issues, etc. I'm thinking visual here - that's probably a bit of the disconnect.
