I am aware that people are sometimes penalized for "Excessive Quoting" while they may not be totally aware of every board policy. Wouldn't it be a better idea to eliminate the possibility of this issue via coding rather than deal with it manually?

"To quote a learned man is to take a dip in the lake of knowledge"
"What light through yonder window breaks? Tis the moon, or Comet ISON, one of those"
"A tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket"
"Don't ask for who the bell tolls, it tolls for tea!"

And finally,

"Four score and seven years ago, our forefathers brought forth the1927 New York Yankees!!!" (a year off, but I couldn't resist)

The quote feature is just standard BB code.

To limit it's content, we'd have to drop the overall available character limit for each post.

It's quite rare actually that people over quote to the point of needing to have it removed. Just alert the ones you see.
