Forum rules

As I understand it you cannot quote a previous reply when responding to a post, in all fairness a red warning usually appears to indicate a new post has been made prior to posting your reply but in some cases this does not always work which can end up looking like you are critical or opposed to the last post made when in fact you may support that point of view.

Perhaps it's just me but even when I have posted something it's not always that quick to get back on the site.
I Accept that a day is more than adequate as it has never taken me that long to get on again

Re: Forum rules

Rather than quote the previous post; I usually find the well known @name of poster with or without the post# works very well. You can also edit your post to add it if you find someone has posted in between.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
