    Well sometimes it helps when there have been multiple comments after the point you wanted to reply on. This makes it easier for everyone to understand what you are replying to.

    If you don't want to read them I'd suggest just scrolling past it, and it doens't take that much more time to load the page if it is on there anyway.

    I'm saying if there were 5 posts between mine and yours, but you wanted to reply to mine then you would quote me so people know exactly what you are talking about, because the topic might have changed in those 5 posts.

    Exactly poertner. There's nothing wrong with quoting someone (like I just demonstrated) because if you read only a little into it you'll know what post he/she is replying to. You don't need to read the whole quote if you've already read the post that's being quoted.

    So if the last post is above like porters why did u quote it fair enough porters comment that subject can be lost.

    Quoting sentences or passages, helps viewers to understand what the author is trying to emphasize or highlight on. There should not be anything wrong quoting unless you are not giving sensible replies.

    If you want meaningless replies, try out the word association game!
