    Big JI pet peeve, quoting the original post

    Dear JI,

    I see this too often on this forum, and almost never anywhere else.

    People, PLEASE, stop quoting the OP with your replies. I cant begin to describe how annoying it is having to scroll through the same original post to read every reply.

    It you don't quote, it is assumed that you are responding to the OP. The quote feature is meant to be used when answering specifically to other replies in the thread.

    Thank you.

    How about quoting just the part of the post you want to address?

    Or maybe doing something like this?
