does no one else find this annoying?

    the "quote" function is a super handy tool. especially the newer version so we don't need to copy/paste everything anymore.


    but in all honesty-and if it's just me, put me to shame- but stop quoting EVERYTHING. some of the posts are getting REALLY long. why must embedded videos be re shown 5 times?

    k there's my rant.

    LOL, I usually quote by hand, or very rarely use the quote button then snip off the rest. icon_razz.gif

    And then half of the time its used incorrectly or doesn't work, so most of the "quote" isn't in italics and its hard to discern between the new comment and old.

    I totally agree with you. I usually don't quote all the previous thread I want to highlight, but I've seen long threads totally quoted again and it is kind of silly.

    Good point!

    I now use the quote function sparingly. I just copy that part of the passage I want to refer to, it makes things a lot shorter.

    What I find more annoying are the forum topics that turn into intellectual slugging matches.
