why is everyone so bothered, loads of the long quotes are just spam or lots of smileys, maybe when some of you have something important to say....

We're all going to be just dirt in the ground.

So you're saying that there will be less spam without the long quotes?

well say if i were to ask a question, for example, what are your views on a film, and then i go offline and come back on and there are 6 pages of endless spam, or smiley faces, its a pain in the arse. and yes in effect there woud be less spam , because rather than having a quote of 20 faces or someone saying random words 20 times, it only has one or two

We're all going to be just dirt in the ground.

Hmm, I think this would be best as a per-user setting. It's not possible with this software how it is now BUT I like changing software to do new crazy things.

I wonder if I could do that, would everybody be happy then? It 'could' be that there would be embedded quotes allowed by default but users could turn them off. That would be cool...

He needs new software to do it the new way but not to bring it back to how it was before.
