I just happened to see the highlighted "May" all by itself there and figured there must be more hidden text there.

Can anyone tell me where the "Subscribe to this thread..." option went? It disappeared a while ago (used to be at the bottom of the page). It was really helpful in being able to follow a conversation in a thread I had posted on.

It was fun doing this. This one was diabolical because H.E. hid it right on the page that EVERYONE (who saw this thread) was on. It was right under your nose(s) H.E. was chortling about that.
There were 3 ways to solve this...
1) Play a hunch. If anyone said, "Would they be so tricky as to hide it on THIS page?" A "View > Source" would validate that hunch pretty quickly.
2) Methodical. This is what Laura did by doing a clever search. Even then, though, you'd have to find it on the page. So it took an extra "play an educated hunch" step to find it.
3) Get Lucky. I don't know if you share a habit (a semi-compulsion) of mine, but if you do, you could find it by sheer luck. When I'm reading a Web page or am in a meeting and a page is up, I tend to select and de-select parts of the page. No special reason. Sometimes I'll "select-all" just to see if there are any "Easter Eggs." Anyone doing that would have stumbled upon the words that were hidden by making the text the same color as the background.
Well done, Laura - the prize for being "Tortoise of the Month" is indeed 6 free months of SBI! added to your account. I don't know how long we can keep these "hides" clever - it's going to tax H.E.'s wicked imagination!
But I think it's kind of fun letting an SBIer find and announce the prize of the month - should we keep doing it this way?
All the best,
