    Shortening "Quotes" for brevity.

    When you "Quote" a respondent, you can pare down the wordage to your salient point.

    That is, if you are so inclined to quote a comment from Axel in your reply, you use the "quote" button.
    But you can "delete" or "backspace" out any of his comments you find beside the point of the topic.

    Please utilize this simple capability you have to make reading these forums less tedious.

    No. I think this is what he meant.

    Actually I hear you, Axel, I'm just being a jackass. There are some members who are very good about paring down their quotes, and others who intentionally insert ridiculously long ones. Whatever. If Webby thinks we need to pare down, I'm sure he'll make a point of it. Otherwise, it's like getting on people's cases about punctutation (which I've done, but again, who cares?).

    If you want, you can limit your response to highlighting the salient letters too.

    Sure. Everyone should be fair in quoting other members. Is there any other thing of this thread that I don't understand.

    Why do you feel that you have been treated unfairly?

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    That is, if I am so inclined to quote a comment from myself in my own reply, I use the "quote" button.
