    Full Page Quotes need to stop!

    I am relatively new to this particular forum, but as a Computer Network Engineer, I have used hundreds of forums for many years (back to BBS).

    Never before have I seen repeated 'full text' quotes copied into a reply like on this site. When that quote includes the same images as originally posted, it becomes extremely annoying to the reader to scroll through!

    I have to wait to post a single image of my work; yet a new subscriber can litter several pages by reposting material I have already seen earlier in the same thread?

    I appreciate all the great information available on MOL, but these Full Page Quotes need to stop.

    Thank you all for the consideration.
    Regards,
    Richard

    OK Murr, you and Joe have fun running this site.

    Lot's of great info on here and lot's of attitude to go with it. Not really what I thought Meguiar's was trying to promote.

    Sorry I picked the wrong place.

    Richard,

    It reads like it was a joke. What I've seen on forums, including this one, is folks have different online etiquette. What seems frustrating to a CNE is probably forum norm (dependent on forum members).

    One of my pet peeves is misspelled words or "txt" language. You get by like with everything else and read into what the poster is trying to convey.

    This forum is pretty docile compared to what I've seen on others.

    Just my 2ยข.

    Wow, don't run off so quick, I think all the replys in this thread were posted with a smile on our faces.
    If we can't joke every now and then, we would all need straight jackets...
