can you imagine if, in real life, people felt the need to repeat all previous parts of a conversation before making an actual response?

forget evolution, the human race would be lucky to survive the day.

That helps, but maybe on the first post of every new page? Is there some way of doing that?

Like

SFC wrote, Plash wrote, tejdog wrote, nitey wrote, wiki wrote, Zbox wrote, [new page], SFC wrote

Then regular no super quote posting from then?

I think the idea behind the quoting feature is to identify which remark specifically you are responding to. I believe that if one is interested in the thread and what someone posted, they can click back and read.

A lot of the comments and suugestions in this forum and the idea of super quoting to keep readers from having to go back and read the thread, defeat the purpose of what we're trying to do here.

It's the page views and people reading every page that drive the ad revenue that pays for the site and keeps it free.

Sure, maybe it takes a little more time to read 4 pages instead of one superquoted post, or having to click thru half a dozen pages to find what you're looking for, BUT, it also quadruples the number of pages/ads and helps us continue to grow and maintain the site.
