Ok, Ima make a serious reply, if they can't fix it or won't or whatever, why worry about it, just work around it and make a quote like fct said to do.

Which genius thought of putting links to other threads between the current thread and the text reply box?
It is genius.. Same reason those waitresses bring you the free liquor at casinos -- to keep you at the table... LOL,,,

Maybe you'll see something that bugs you more and open it in new tab,.. You're not playing at Super Bowl level if ya don't have 8 or 12 tabs open. :up:
>>Hillary Victory Speech 3-15-16>> The epitome of clueless hypocrisy..

"We live in a complex and, yes, a dangerous world. Protecting America's national security can never be an after thought."
Yeah -- she actually said that... :eusa_doh:

And your point?

I might post every now and then in here but no more real involvement....the format is just nuts.....as in when a discussion really gets hot and there are lots of replys one or two things happen....you start seeing these long, long blacklines which requires you to scroll and scroll to read a post but what happens all too often you wind up on another thread or the thread itself is moved or shut down.

just too many annoyances....I have been posting on another board....a conservative board...smaller than here but the format is better.
I haven't had a bit of problem with it. Scroll wheel too much for your finger?

/——/ Parler? I’m seriously considering not renewing next January for the same reason. Besides the long lines and skipping threads, the annoying popup ad on the top, it hides the icons. And when I try to leave anything other than the thank you icon, I have to tap just lightly or I get the copy function. On my PC it works better, but on my iPhone, it sucks. They should just go back to the original format, clean and simple.
It does suck on iPhone, but works great on my iPad.

Point is -- that's not the topic here.. PM me to discuss... I encourage it.. You MIGHT be as clueless as she is about security and protocols...

You're right, the format sucks on toast.....But whatchagonnado?:dunno:
Cut quotes. :aargh:Start from the end of the 1st "]"
all the way down to the quote you want to do.
Up to the 2nd to last "]"
OP must be at that forum where the head cheese banned my favorite founder.
I'm banned for disagreement about smoking meats.
