It's very annoying to see full-page long quotes of a quote within a quote within a quote within a quote within a quote. Is there any feature that could turn this off?

Laziness is a disease some of us suffer from.

No need to be so cruel. 🐰

lol. Nah I'm not being cruel, I'm kinda lazy too by my own right but if people think highlighting paragraphs and pushing the backspace button takes a lot of their time to be an excuse for laziness then may god help us all.

I think people don't do it because they forget they can. Not laziness.

I beg to differ because when you quote a post, the quotation is clearly placed on the white text box.

And most people here even change the font color of quoted posts to highlight a certain phrase.

Anyway I'm going to ask the other admins if this is possible in forumotion.

Quoteception :coffee: I personally don't mind it if there is a lot of reference to previous arguments, however if a quote is no longer needed I'll remove it.

I do it. The problem is that very little other people do. And most forums have disabled it, so that makes me think there is a feature somewhere in the Admin PC that allows them to turn it off.

Nested quotes are really, really annoying.
