Default BOOBIES!!!!!

No, not really.

But now that I have your attention, it's time for a reminder to all members, new and old.

There has been a massive amount of excessive quoting lately. I'm not even out looking for it; it seems as though every other thread I read has someone quoting the entire post, or the majority of it, and only posting a sentence or two in reply.

I've seen threads with three or more consecutive posts with execessive quoting.

Please, everyone....trim your quotes. It keeps the threads looking neat and prevents people from having to wade through a sea of quoted text to get to the new material.

I've said this on more than one occasion, but a good rule of thumb to follow is that if the quote is longer than your reply, then the quote can be trimmed or even omitted entirely.

It's getting far out of hand, and what's especially irksome is that the people I see doing this are long-time members who should know better by now.

Would this be the common blue-footed booby or the interwebbed red-faced booby?

Given the actual topic of the discussion, it'd be the misshapen stretch-marked booby.

So, while everybody was busy getting all corny and straining brain cells to come up with puns, did anyone actually READ the post?

Apparently not. I just had to trim another quote a little bit ago.

OK I just found yet another, and again it was a long-standing member who really should know better.

This is becoming tiresome. Trimming your quotes is ridiculously simple; failing to do so is discourteous to the entire board. There is no good reason why we should have to be hammering this particular point.
