    @oldmom4896 is right! @CCadmin_Sorin

    Oops, tagging isn't working, either. I'll send Sorin a note.

    From Roger Dooley on 01/25/2010: "The lack of a quote button is intentional. Two main reasons for that... First, I have seen that most forums that have this feature often have a lot of redundant junk in their threads from someone quoting 5 paragraphs and adding a line or two of their own. That's very annoying and makes the thread hard to read.

    Second, quoting is often used by posters who want to dissect another member's post line-by-line and refute each point. We do not want to encourage such posts, as they tend to become one-on-one debates that add little to the community."

    and in another post on 05/01/2013: "...in forums where it's simple to push a button to quote an entire post I've almost always seen massive thread pollution involving repetition and duplication of the same content."

    This was the reasoning for no quote button in the past. Apparently there was one briefly sometime around the time of the second quote above (2013), but then it disappeared.

    I wonder if the quote button will last this time? Mods may become very busy removing extraneous quoted material. Then again, there are fewer posts to moderate.

    Mods (at least speaking for myself) have no intention of editing posts to remove extraneous material, nor should any user have the expectation that we would. We only edit posts the violate ToS. If excess quoting results in an unsatisfactory UX, it's not the mods that users need to complain to.
