I changed the colour scheme and posted a message to dissuade people from posting visitor messages. I never read them.

It hasn't dissuaded me. Very nearly, though.

I know you never read them, but newbies don't know it, they can't even read the message you have posted there to scare them !

Some one has posted a new REPORT (to move a thread) there, if you block your visitor msgs column no one will be able to post there ever.

I hate getting this sort of information by drip feed. You described your Internet connection this way

What else should we know?
I want to understand the replies to above two quotes. When the replier said "I hate getting this sort of information by drip feed" what exactly does this mean ?

and "What else should we know?" , does he mean here that I have given less information or something else ?

It means you're giving the information needed bit by bit, only when prompted, instead of all at once.

Yeah, it means that possibly there's more you could be telling us.

Remove the "a".

Here, the term "good health" is thought of as an abstract state (being healthy) rather than as a physical thing (a place/room/something called a "good health").

I guess that's the internet for you...

Thanks for the sentiments anyway, though...it's getting better, albeit slowly.

And you're welcome for the little grammar hint.
