Just a remark on quoting.

If you're quoting the last post of a thread, just don't do it, it clutters threads up too much. Tongue Why repeat a post that's directly above your own?

Hmph! As if I don't know that this is directly at me!

Puppy Face, just kidding. Lots of other people do it, I'll try to cut back or something.

Because somebody might post while you're writing your reply, and stick a post between yours and the person you're replying to.


Edit: Thanks for demonstrating, pie.
silenttype01: Kyzentun is never harsh. He says it how it is.

GENERATION 24: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

What if you're only addressing a small part of a large post?

I'll be sure to think about this then, but sometimes it's just necessary.

If it's a small part then it's okay, just not when it's a whole block of text. Tongue

My rule is that I never quote entire posts, just one line expressing the gist of the post. I don't quote quotes unless they're absolutely relevant.

As for quoting the person above me, I don't usually do it. Sometimes, I'll just write the person's name and my reply next to it.
