    There's a little trick that some people use when they reply to somebody's post without quoting it.  You just go @redsoxdirtdog or @billge.  Works pretty well without cluttering the screen.

    "


     


     


     


    The Patriots don’t have an immediate need at quarterback, but they’re continuing to show interest in drafting one.


     


     


     


    Our list of pre-draft visits shows that the Patriots have spent time with Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas. According to Boston.com, the list of quarterbacks the Patriots have spent time with at Pro Day workouts also includes Eastern Illinois’s Jimmy Garoppolo, Ohio State’s Kenny Guiton, Alabama’s A.J. McCarron, South Carolina’s Connor Shaw and Ball State’s Keith Wenning.


     


     


     


    And the latest name to the list of quarterbacks the Patriots have been linked to is Northern Colorado’s Seth Lobato, a raw, 6-foot-6 former basketball player.


     


     


     


    The Patriots might be thinking now about what they’ll do at quarterback when Tom Brady retires. Or they could be trying to light a fire under Brady. Or they could be trying to pick the brains of as many quarterbacks as they can, as offensive schemes increasingly migrate from college to the NFL. Whatever the reasons, by the time of the draft in three weeks, it appears that the Patriots will have talked to just about every available quarterback.


     


     


     


    "


     


     


     


    Who knows what they will do. They certainly have options. I guess it will depend on whether they move Mallett on draft day.


     


    [/QUOTE]


    When you ACTUALLY said that they "could be trying to light a fire under Brady" you lost ALLLLLLL credibility. No matter what you think about Brady that is the LAST thing anyone would need to do.


     


    Good luck with your day job.

    What you are doing is called blaming the victim. In the old days, just a year of so ago when one hit reply it just showed the first posters last comment, not a whole page of comments including tons of white space.


    You are correct that replying just ads to the problem, but anyone that is building a website like this could fix the problem in a day at the most. They just chooses not to.

    I've been saying this even before the 'white space' became an issue.  Once the reply thread is more than a few posts, just cut and paste the part you are responding to.


    Just from a practical sense, if your debating a point, no one will know what you're responding to unless you copy that specifc portion.
