Its there for a reason... :bnghd:

Obviously most people know this... so this is more of a plea to the newer members rather then a rant...

Though it always seems to hit me as a facepalm moment when I see this happen...

Without pressing that sweet little button, it looks like you're speaking to everyone in the thread...

And IF said thread is 150 pages long... its just confusing


Heres another great reason to use reply...


Go into your messages and you will see Every single person that pressed that button to speak with you!!



SO...

quick recap....

USE THE DAMN REPLY BUTTON!!

Please!?!?


Thanks...

I thought you meant, and I would like to add;
"Use the reply button rather than the quote button, unless you really need to remind people which sentence you're responding to".
There is no need to quote every blessed word of the other poster in your reply, especially if that includes every word of the post that poster was responding to, and so on ad infinitum.

Edit; This was not a response to the person just above, even though he demonstrates the point.

I'd like to see two more buttons on here - the PFFFT button and the Bernard Shnitzel button.

It kind of makes sense that I quote the bit that you reference the "poster above", which can be anyone above me, however demonstrates the importance of quoting replies to address specific replies.

Peace

I salute the remarkable patience of the mods..... modern days saints practicing unsalaried auto flagellation.

hahaha It's a smart alec festival!! Love those. Fine ATS tradition and yeah I'm talkin' to you! To keep the OP from busting a vein, I agree it helps with confusion, but I can still find plenty anyway

I've noticed this recently myself. I went to an old thread and found a reply to me, but not using the "reply to" button. So I never knew the reply existed.

I also love those "just posting so I can find this later" posts. The "subscribe" button works wonders folks.
