    i HATE HATE HATE posts that have quote after quote after quote in them so that the post is longer then the screen and i have to scroll to the bottom to read the reply!

    cant people just quote the thing they are replying to and NOT the whole damn thread ARGH!

    I hate that too, especially when I'm on my iphone cos the writing in the middle is teeny-tiny and gives me eye-ache to read lol

    Bit random but ok.
    What if the reply relates to the whole quoted conversation though?

    lol Does take up a bit of space, doesn't it? I tend to erase the whole quote except the last thing said, or everything but the bit to which my reply is relevant if it's a long quote to begin with.
