    If you quote just a part of someone's previous post please use the ellipsis (...part your are quoting...). This lets others know that the other person has said more on the post than you are quoting. I understand the desire to avoid quoting a long post and to quote only the part you are responding to(I often do it myself), but one should also avoid the apparence of selective, out of context, quoting.

    Phemster, I believe you are referring to the "ellipsis".

    Thanks for calling me out.

    Guys if you make a grammar or spelling error jprichva is going to catch you. He has caught others just like he caught me this time. Proofread and check your post before he exposes you. icon_wink.gif
