This is really too much. You have no problem finding the suggestion button, or a u2u, any other time. You get a warn and it has to go on the board. The martyr act is wearing thin.

LadyV, I was going to U2U you on this, but figured that others might need to kinow this as well.

The way to handle this is easy: Put the material you're quoting into a quote box and put a link on it, and then put your comments outside the quote. In general (copyrights and politeness) it's best to quote a paragraph or two or several sentences and put a link. If you have a number of points to make, you can quote several sentences, link, then comment, then quote sentences... etc.

A good discussion of your opinions is a springboard to a good conversation.

If you have questions or want to see how we'd judge something, please U2U me or another mod.
