Please Avoid Needlessly Long Quotes!

Please....use the Quote function judiciously. Most of the time it’s not necessary to quote the whole of a previous post. If you only quote the lines you are specifically replying to, it not only makes your point clearer; it saves the rest of us from having to scroll past yards of quote to get to YOUR contribution. The boards are a lot easier to read if everyone takes the trouble to quote selectively!

If you're not sure how to do this, check out How To Quote Parts of a Post in the Newborn in Seattle forum. You'll find detailed instructions there.
