yes - for multiple, segmented quotes, it's fine to start with a properly attributed 1st quote (assigned by default when the quote option is chosen)... by inference, all other non-attributed quotes following associate with the named person/linkage shown within that initial quote. What I'm referring to is where the attribution has been (purposely) removed from that initial quote.

I liked the little sidebar comments of the other site.  Is that an option in this software?

I would suggest when you remove someone's insulting reply to some smarmy post you also remove the smarmy post.

I do my best to do that, but I don't always - report it and I'll always deal with it in some way.

In this case, BTW, I didn't feel his post was over the line.

Yep I could probably weigh in on that but I won't. Greener pastures I say.

I will also say this to SirJohn - many of your posts are reported.  I read them, but touch almost none of them.

Seriously? There's like six people who regularly post here. And I'm gonna go out on a limb and figure it's probably not Kimmy or Tim.  So which of the snowflakes keeps making unnecessary reports?

My calling him an idiot shouldn't have been over the line either, given it was more of an accurate description than a pejorative.
