    But what if you want to reply to more than one post, maybe two members said something you want to comment on, or you want to capture an exchange to provide context. For this you use what I call the "quote plus" button:



    Click that for all but the last post and for the last post click reply with quote.

    One glitch seems to be the posts you quote plussed, they seem to stick, so when you later reply with quote to another post in the same thread, you might also get your earlier quote plussed posts as well.

    It doesn't always happen. If it does, you can edit them out.

    Ya need to seed PM's to the ones that notoriously don't use this feature.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    I can think of better ways to deal with them, like boil them in oil!

    Yeah !!

    Slowly lower them feet first, don't wanna hurt their typing fingers.

    Tis quite frustrating, especially a poster that's mildly incoherent

    becomes extremely incoherent when you don't know who they're

    responding to. Add to that first grade grammar and I just move on.

    I will quote "shorter" posts otherwise I do the @Chris because on the Vbulletin platform the scrolling SUCKS especially on a phone or tablet and also as courtesy some of those agregiously long rambling posts are extremely ANNOYING when everybody quotes the sam long post why its almost as bad when CIMMEE used to spam threads with the entire first chapter of Mein Kampf or HailScience quoting 23 different links and sources in the SAME POST

    On a desktop with mouse not so bad
    but on a smartphone or tablet SCROLLING NIGHTMARE

    And especially sucking on.Vbulletin platform
