The quote feature, where the entire contents of another post is pasted into a responding post, is being abused of late. The feature is there to use with proper control, but members are simply including entire quoted posts in their postings. This isn't like an email discussion list where one doesn't have the previous email content in front of them. The message you are replying to is often just one or two postings above, in full view.
If members don't start exercising some restraint in this area, I'll have no choice but to disable the quote function.
