Moderator Note: This becoming a bit of a regular refrain, GSC, but once again: please don't quote anything more than the bare minimum from another post - it's not neccessary to copy paragraph upon paragraph - just a relevant sentence or two is more than enough.The Tidy Tintinolgist Team
I was refuring to the whole segment. Hence me quoting the whole message. But I can keep tabs down on that if you want. :)Moderator Note:
There's really no need to be snarky... The purpose of the quote is to give an indication of who said what, where, and to allow other members of that which you are responding to.
If you are posting on-topic, that is sufficient for purpose. People will be able to understand that you are replying to the previous poster's comment.
It's different if you are making a reply to specific points within the same message (say someone has asked multiple questions about an issue), but even then, quotes should be introduced sparingly at appropriate times.
Quoting a message at length, in its entirity, is un-necessary, and slows a thread down considerably, especially when other members will already have read that message, and the reply given is far far shorter than the original post.
Finally, if you wish to dispute a moderation, the place to do it is off-forum, by e-mail to the team or directly to Admin.The Tintinologist Team
