    It's tedious to see people having to, in some instances, re-post the vast majority of a thread when all they really should, or want to be, quoting is a sentence from the post.

    Also, have the RJ developers given thought to a comment-on-comment system a la Reddit? That would be great.

    I find it very tedious, when browing a thread, when it develops into something like:

    Bloggs said:
    ...Smith said:
    ........ Joe said:
    ........This one said:
    .............That one said:

    Whenever I need to quote someone, all I need to to is to erase the text I don't need, leaving what I do need without disturbing the "quote" symbols at each end of the sentence. Like this the quoted text appears in italics with my own script beneath it.

    It is easy to do. People are just... Oh, I shouldn't say anything mean.

    Agreed. I like what we have. The real problem is people not taking the time to remove the text not pertinent to their comment.
