Just a little reminder--when quoting someone in the forums, you do not have to keep the entire quote with your reply. You can, and often should (when the piece you are quoting is exceptionally long) only use the section you are agreeing with or an example sect. As long as you keep the ( quote and name within brackets ) at the beginning and end of that person's words, the quote will still work and you can delete all the extra stuff.
Or just say, hey soandso, that explanation helped me, thanks!
And...one last thing, if you're the first person to respond to a thread, no need to quote the question. Juast respond. It's obvious what you're answering.
Ok, I'm done griping now LOL
I do this almost all the time.
I never do this.
You make valid points here anyway.
Great plan! Threads take many pages sometimes because of quoting the same passage over and over again...
Especially when they contain pictures that take time to load.
It's not a plan, really, just stating what should be bleeding obvious! I've suggested that forum posts should be limited in length, which would force people to think before they quote great chunks. I'm not suggesting anything drastic - maybe 400 or 500 words.

People frequently quote unnecessarily on forums in my opinion. It is particularly pointless when you are the first to comment on the original message.

We know a lot from what others have learn. And from that knowledge one will quote what is said because it identifies with an experience in their life. The world will and do quote different historians,educators, philosophers, and poets of the world.It is the same with bible role models that have...

Hi, I'm not a fan of this new feature of quoting and re-quoting the OP's question or comments over and over and over again. It's annoying to scroll through, and is a waste of time and space on the screen. Therefore, I'm all in favor of the new "import and edit" the...

What are the rules about quoting from books?I have quoted short passages, (in full, exactly, with quotation marks), from books, given author and title, promoted book with Amazon. However, I've been told by a friend in publishing that I should apply to the publisher even to quote a paragraph, and...
