Thank you Damien, I was starting to think I was the only one who found it irritating.
Pointless citation is the reason I don't read Joe Dees anymore and he's far from
the only one, the fact is I don't read any post that contains nothing but quotations on
the first screen. Life is short and there are too many posts to scroll through
dozens of lines we've all seen before to find original content. Besides, I figure
anybody that poor at editing probably can't organize their thoughts in a clear
concise manner either and so is not worth reading.
