I find it very common to see an entire post quoted directly beneath the post itself. It is not necessary to quote the entire post to respond to the post. It uses a lot of space and it is very unnecessary. With that in mind, I recommend a few practical suggestions on quoting: 1. If you are responding to a post directly above your reply, it is not necessary to quote the post at all. 2. Limit your quote only to those portions that you wish to respond to. 3. If you wish to respond to the entire post, quote a phrase and respond, then repeat the process until you are finished. It makes it much easier to read and follow. 4. If you wish to place your agreement on a post that is not directly above your reply, simply quote the first sentence or two and then add your "Amen" as the reply. In other words, do not quote an entire post just to add your "amen" to the bottom.
