Quoting

Settle down on the damn quoting. My god. You do NOT need to quote the original poster. We already know you are replying to their message, especially if your the 1st reply. Holy shit. Think before you quote, thank you.

Couldn’t agree more! Those dumb fuckers!

I can’t help it. I just laughes out loud. I knew it was coming before I scrolled down—and I still laughed.

The only thing funnier would have been like 3 pages of it.

I hate when someone quotes more than one post at a time and doesn’t delete the one he’s not responding to.

Not only that, but the original idea doesn’t make much sense. How would anyone know I was responding to what YOU wrote if there are several posts above mine? I could be speaking to anyone. Also, if someone makes a HUGE post, and I want to respond to each point individually, why wouldn’t I quote those parts and respond to each alone? I’m supposed to retype everything?

What’s worse is when someone quotes themselves.

It is really annoying when people do this, I definitely have to agree.

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

If I use the Quote feature, I delete the parts I’m NOT responding to, so no one has to scroll through too much visual dreck.

Quoting is like talking in the gym; some selected quoting works, but there’s usually too damn much.

HA!
I was thinking about doing the same thing, but I was too lazy. :smiley:

When you started this thread you were just ASKING for people to quote the whole thing in their posts.

By the way, it’s done so that people know who the hell you’re talking to, because posts don’t go through instantly.

It’s for clarity’s sake.
