    It is very difficult to moderate the posts of those who do not understand how to quote another poster. Please, when you quote someone, just quote the last person's post, not the 5 or 6 past posts in addition to that. If your post is 1 or 2 posts under the person you want to talk to, instead of using the quote feature you can use their name.

    One example would be: @poster I agree or disagree with your last post...

    Our reasons:

    It really messes up the forum.
    It is unnecessary and lazy.
    It does not promote easy reading and is plain annoying.

    Feel free to pass this on.

    Thank-you.

    Since I've probably been guilty of this myself, I'm not sure this is clear. Why would you quote the last person if what you want to quote may be in the middle of the thread? Also, if there are numerous people in the conversation, it automatically picks up all the quotes. Do people go back to the original post?

    Why don't you just do away with quote button and be done with it.

    Or limit the amount of messages that can be quoted, problem solved.

    I am happy about this...

    it's just too bad that it can't be limited to 4 deep automatically rather than just asking that posters try and not just keep on quoting...

    must take up an inordinate amount of server space.

    and another bump...I couldn't agree with your more!

    quote the last person's post, not the 5 or 6 past posts
