    When you use the quote function it is screwed up this morning. Look at my thread about Hypocrites to see what I mean. On my quote I tried to fix it a little.

    The quote function now quotes more than just the quote above your post. YOu have to go through and clean out the extraneous text, ensuring that ONLY the person whose name you want is listed in the <quote="useridnumber"> and that there is only one </quote> at the end of his/her comments.

    I don't like the new way, but it's not 'screwed up.'

    As a matter of fact, "dumbshit", that's exactly right.

    Once one person screws up a quote, and doesn't fix it, anyone replying to it via quote ALSO gets screwed up, unless it gets fixed.

    Learn HTML.

    Well, since you asked so nicely...Editec tried to edit out things from what he quoted and failed, so when you quoted Edi's mess up it also came out as a mess up.

    Good thing you like me, RGS, otherwised I'd be upset with your pet names for me, you developmentally challenged moron.
