Forum "Quotes" question

This is not a complaint, just a question for the moderators(or anyone less clueless than me) I have noticed recently that when I use the quote on a thread, I can (accidentally) erase or change the quote, at least in my post. I accidentally changed one by typing over the quote, and it posted it that way. Isn't this something that wasn't there before? I guess it is kind of wrong that some joker(not ME!) could change our words, at least on his post. ??

If you are misquoted, complain to the respondent and then to the moderator.

I've clipped quotes before to emphasize the content I refer to, but never changed wording or meaning or attempted to change context.

Like they say: "Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean people aren't out to get you"

Yes you can change the quote in your reply but....The original is still there for all to see unless the originator changes it. So if someone changed your quote in their post, you could say "See above....I didnt say that"

I agree with V-Zee, I remove most of the quote so I can reply to a specific section if need be.

I like the way it is.

Half the fun of quotes is having the ability to change them. My friends and I have a private forum and have a great time changing each others quotes and then letting the fun begin.

It's always been that way. And it's that way on every forum I'm a member of. No such thing as copyrights for forum posts....

Kirk, did someone change your avatar, cause it kinda looks like a hillbilly now.

sometimes it's necessary to edit a quote to clarify the original meaning. for instance:

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

I once saw the late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy say, ďItís the oldest trick in the book. First you misrepresent what someone said and then you argue against it. I do it all the timeĒ.

And he said it like he was proud of it!
