I haven't been able to see quotes for a couple months. Just didn't think I should bring it up. You've been kind of menstrual lately Zero.

well said. If I know what has been said I skip over the older posts. If it is over a period of a day or two I skim thru the older ones to see what the chain of events was.

I guess I never really thought of them as a benefit. I've viewed them as clutter and not important. Although, knowing that it gets Rourke's panties in a bunch ... I may have to reconsider. :P


I don't really have much to say here, i just wanted to quote this so i could nest some quotes and make NSD pull his hair out.



I want you to know how much work it is sometimes to be a pain in the butt around here. But I am willing to do my part for the sake of the forum.

OK. Please enlighten me because I missed something.

Why is DakotaT "bee boy?" I've heard the reference many times but don't know the source.

So let me get this straight. You think nested quotes are great but you skip right over them? Then what, pray tell, is the point of nested quotes?

He has a few bee hives and tends to them and collects the honey.

It is a tool. It helps to follow the comments. As you have noticed the threads can very easily become jumbled. I don't re-read every single quote but I can if I need to see what has taken place over a couple of days or the prior quotes have started to wander. That is a lot easier than to clink the quote link on 3 or 4 prior posts.
Plus I will scan the replies. Sometimes I miss something. When nested I can go back and find the portion of the post that I missed, misread and get back up to speed with the rest of the conversation fairly quickly.

If we have it- great.
If we don't have it- I will do without.

As I have said so many times before, I am not opposed to nested quoting per se. I just seriously doubt that quotes nested more than two levels deep are ever truly necessary to establish context for a quote, and almost never does the entire post, much less a string of posts, need to be quoted to establish context. It's the routine, mindless use of nesting to which I object. No one has ever complained about not being able to understand my carefully trimmed quotes.

3,500 hives = a few to you? No wonder I never get the credit I'm do in this bitch. And that's my part time gig. I'm fricken superman compared to the Professors. Sorry, did I misspell some words?

Wade, your sweet ND love nectar is in a box, but I'm waiting to send you your Christmas card. Just the babes this year, my ugly ass wasn't invited.
