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

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

    I'm not 'puter savvy. How on earth do you do that? Only way I can think of is to click on POST A MESSAGE and then paste the poster that you want to quote, along with the quote. Is there another way to do it?

    What you need to do is go into the post and delete the other quotes.. I usually try to delete the ones right after the one I am quoting.

    Explanation please? I've also thought it was ridiculous to see a half dozen posts requited before seeing the response, but I still don't understand how to do that.

    If I want to respond to the 6th post, I choose "reply with quote" and the system automatically recopies all of the preceeding posts.

    I need some more 'splainin', please?

    you have to go to the first quote and leave it but delete everyone else's post that you do not want.

    But, what if you don't want the first post you only want to respond to the last person that posted in a particular quote. Do you have to delete everything but that?

    I agree with whoever said limit it to a certain number deep. That would stop the really really really long ones.

    it is easier if you find the post that you want to respond otherwise it is not as easy to fix

    What I try to do is to go to the original post, then hit the reply.
    That way, you are posting only to the person that posted what you want to respond to.
    Easiest way for me.
    I have been very guilty of posting after two or three post.
    I promise to do better.
