Please look at the numerous posts and tell me that all these
"quote" "quote" lines make this a readable site.
It's a headache to try to get through a thread, because of this.
Whose idea was this, anyway? It's awful!
I like being able to respond to a certain post by hitting "Reply to this post," as I just did, and posting my comment under a quote from the post I am responding to. I remember a time when you could not do this. You had to copy and paste what you were responding to. The reply button is so much more convenient. But it should be automatic that the only quote that comes up in your response is the last one in the post you are responding to. That seems programmably doable. Problem would be solved.
That said, posters could do this on their own, by eliminating all the previous quotes they are not responding to. I have done this because I agree wholeheartedly with you. It is extremely hard to read posts, which keep getting longer and longer as posters go back and forth responding to one another.
Great post Parhunter. Until BDC recognizes the problem and resolves it, the only solution is to copy the post that you are responding to, paste it to a new post by you, and then type your response below it. It is unbelievable that BDC doesn't recognize it as a serious problem.To copy - highlight the previous post that you want to copy, right click and choose copy. You then start a new post and right click and choose paste. You then type in your response below it. After you do this once, it will be second nature.
That is less readable because you copy the avator. It is also an invcreditbly stupid way to reply to a post since you are really replying to anything.
