Ok, when, let's say Nefi, for doing a nice job explaining, hmm... lets assume... the value of sending chicks to Teapot... then I quote his post with a counterpoint, you should NOT @#$% quote MY quote without removing Nefi's from my quoteed material (yes, i know that's confusing, boo hoo...)

We've already read nefi's post
Twice.
we're pretty well set when you take MY quote that we know what I'm replying to... hell... if you want you can just do a

so we're SURE that i'm quoting nefi, but if they like then they can go up and read either nefi's post OR mine to make sure they know what I'm talking aboot.

if anyone double quotes in this forum they're gay, discluding mine, because it was an example...

Maybe people want to continue the discussion but there is more than one subject happening in the previous posts. To avoid confusion, they double quote.

so? they can simply reply to the counterpoints given IN THAT POST rather than quoting someone's quote, as well as the subject matter they were talking about.
they can simply edit the quotes to make it pertain to what they were actually replying to. If they need to get some other quotes as source material, say from the person who TP was quoting up in my first post, they can simply write it like this...

Little TP wrote:

<text about how chicks are good>
<text about how chicks are good>

<cites nefi's quote>
goddamn dutch evil nazi bastard that won't send TP hot chix wrote wrote:

<only the points presented that contradict TP>
or
<the sections TP ignored because they were devastating to his argument>

Instead of taking two ENTIRE POSTS and placing them before your post...
