I also think it's not necessary to quote an entire post. I usually try to just quote the part that I'm responding to. I don't know how to quote mutliple quotes, from what I've heard that takes this thing called cutting and pasting, I don't want to learn that, I'm too old. I don't really care.
And these political posts, some are sooooo long, they are ridiculous. It's not like these posts here on TN are going to change anybody's mind. But it's good that everybody can post their opinions.
