1. It is not necessary to quote the post directly above your response. There has been far too much of this going on lately. It makes it much harder to read the thread when you have to wade through all of the quotes. 2. It is not necessary to quote a post in its entirety when you simply want to add an "Amen," or "I agree," etc... 3. If you wish to respond to a post, simply quote the statement or paragraph that you wish to respond to instead of the entire post. If you use the quick respond feature, you can "drag and drop" any portion of the post into the reply area. 4. DO NOT quote a post that needs to be edited. The Moderators then have to edit the original violating post and than all of the subsequent quotes of that post.
