    Does anyone else think it would be a good idea that when responding to multiple comments to copy and paste only the last comment and respond to that?  Or, even only to address a comment to a specific person on a new page?

    I think if that was done, it would be less confusing to follow and also would allow more comments per page. 

    [/QUOTE]

    +50,000 It's sheer laziness by posters that causes these absurd 'snowballing' posts that clutter up threads.

    Sometimes it's laziness. Sometimes it's simply habit. I'll hit reply and post w/o thinking about how long the post is I'm replying to. If it hit me and it's a long thread, I'll copy and paste the most recent replies. Sometimes it doesn't hit me on how long the posts are becoming until after I reply.

    I think thats a very good idea. I did it for a while when the quote got long. Time to start doing it again.

    Yeah, habit for me.  Prior to the recent 'upgrades', this could be done automatically.

    I'd hit reply on most of Jose/Spike posts, but reiterating his view on forums/chatrooms might put people to sleep.

    I'm sure IT guy for this board could easily make that an upgrade.  I thought we could highlight the content you were responding to, then just hit reply on the old board but I might be thinking about another forum.

    Yeah, I am sure they could too since it already was a feature.  I think it was 'Reply to Most Recent Posts' or something like that.  They really botched the latest upgrade.

    Spacemen,

    Good point. We did not have this monster posts before the recent upgrades.

    If BDC would reset the software so we could return to before than we would not have to deal with them anymore.

    If not, again, I think it is a great idea proposed by ampoule.

    [/QUOTE]

    Yeah, the problem inherent in having to do it manually is a formatting one.  Its not just cutting and pasting the particular post one is responding to:  one must also delineate with bold/itals/a line between that post and the one being written.  Many times, posters do go through the trouble of cutting and pasting, but without delineation, it is difficult to tell where a post ends and another begins.  And, withoutprotocol as to how to delineate, it is sometimes difficult to pick up on one technique vs. another.  So, yes, i agree we should all be doing this, but it is really annoying.

    Highlight the post that you want to respond to by left clicking and dragging your mouse, then right click and choose COPY. Go to the blank comment box, right click and choose PASTE. This takes 20 seconds.

    Then skip a line and draft your response. 




    much better to CUT out the parts U R not responding to

    this way it still says who U R quoting

    this takes 19 seconds
