Not really a gripe so much as a minor observed annoyance. I can see quoting a part of the original post if your reply is specific to it. I can see quoting the OP if there’s a lot of replies and subject digressions. But if you are the first reply it’s safe to assume we know what you’re replying to.

Me too. I figure folks are either unaware of how to selectively quote or just plain lazy. Eek

I think we all would have been VERY disappointed if the 2nd post in this thread was not as yours was.

Well played!

Short posts, don't care. But, quoting the entire article is just ridiculous.

As I was reading the OP, I knew what the first response was going to be.

I just did not know who was going to post it.

It's particularly annoying when one photo is popular and people continuously quote it so the thread is flooded with the same photo.

This occurs when someone highlights everything in a post, then hits the reply button, as I've done with your post. I have no good explanation for this, other than people who aren't good with computers.

You can also highlight text and click reply. The highlighted text will be quoted. It won’t show the author, however.
