    Why is it that so many BB members will "quote" an entire post when they are only referring to one small section? Many are extremely long. Make it simple - just include the portion you are answering as it is much easier to read. If necessary use the Ellipses ( ...) . Also, break up the "quoted" portion if there are differnet subject to address.
    Most often, when I see that I just bypass that entire post.

    PS - I am open to a VALID reason why you would include an extremely long post in its entirety

    I presume people who post using their phones are lazy and don't want to edit the quoted portion of their response.

    I've had BB members PM me and complain when I edit their post inside the quote marks, insisting I leave the entire thing intact. I ignore this instruction but maybe others heed the request.
