So let me see, how do I respond to this? Aah, I got it! ADAPT! That's right, adapt! It's not that hard! Don't expect the world to adapt to you and don't expect me or anybody else to taylor make our posts to the personal preferences of each and every poster. I really don't agree that what you suggests hides text or that it makes things any easier (or worse) for reading!
I think fewer than one out of ten thousand posts on this forum follows the convention you had been using.
Most people who post here probably post because they want other people to read what they write. If you don't care whether I read or even skim the things you have to say, I don't have any objection to you ignoring the convention. But I would expect you might be interested in learning to maximize the effectiveness of the things you write.
There's really nothing for you to disagree with when I tell you that putting your new text inside a quote box makes it much less likely that I will read it. I intend on no longer discussing this unless I'm publicly attacked again!
I really doubt I'm the only person who reads these forums in this fashion.
Boloney that "one out of ten thousand posts on the forum follows the convention" I've been using. That's your opinion, and if you did do the research to prove what you've stated, you surely have entirely too much freek'n time on your hands!
As for your quote box problem, what part of my statement "I think I have already started doing just that which you're suggesting, except where it may be more of a bother than it's worth."
don't you understand??? (which incidently you just happened to conviently exclude in your quote) I don't know if your problem is because of pettiness, lazyness or whatever, or because your political views (and those of the liberal that pushed the same opinion onto me) differ from my own, but the problem is not my problem. The problem is yours and anyone that would agree with you. To Others
: My apologies to those who had to read this response, but since this matter was made personal and publicly, I deserve the right to respond in like! Hopefully this will be the end of this "beating of a dead horse" issue that I feel should have never begun in the first place!
