    How do people feel about the practice of putting a line through part of someone's post? (I've never actually figured out how to do that on this board.) Should that be okay?

    Since the subject of quotation was also brought up we also have a certain member who likes to double quote and then reply as if both separate quotes from separate members represent the thoughts of both individuals.

    This is unfair and misleading!

    If it is in context yes. I also use bold if I am being specific so as not to confuse.

    No sense in quoting everything in a long drawn out posts that are not relevant to the point you are trying to make. Either in agreement or to refute it.

    I thought I'd tried that. Let me see.

    Yep, it worked that time. Thanks to you and the several others who told me the same thing. Now of course I'll end up never using it.

    Can you show an example of what you’re talking about?
