Why do people think they MUST REPOST an OP 's original post in their reply. It's un-needed and it takes space. IMHO, just totally unnecessary

Oh, where to start?
  • Thread titles that don't give enough info about the contents of the OP. For example a post in the Remington forum titled "Remington." Yes, it's happened.
  • Thread titles like those used in today's clickbait headlines, such as "Which one is best?" or even simply "Why?"
  • Posts in the wrong area. Why is somebody asking about scopes in the forum for barrels? Why are stocks for CZ listed for sale in the 10/22 area of the Trading Post?
  • Members who habitually go over the limit of five active adverts in the TP.
  • Old geezers lamenting that the Good Old Days are gone... by complaining about things they don't like in the modern world.
  • Guys who twist just about anything into social or political commentary. For example a light-hearted thread about words that have slipped from the vernacular turning into complaints about people not saying please or thankyou.
  • Generally anything along the lines of "if you do it differently than I would do it, you're doing it wrong."
A whole lot more but.. you know what?... it's Thanksgiving so I think I'll spend some time focusing on the positive. Even though I think we have the ball rolling and this will just become a magnet for more moaning and groaning from the old...er.... experienced shooters who like to grumble about things they don't like.

I'm thinking it is a courtesy and it helps keep the reply in context. The arrow in the reply enables one to go back to the quoted message to refresh memory or read it for the first time if one has been skimming a sub forum.

We have bandwidth to burn when it comes to a text based forum.

Helps with the continuity when there are multiple threads in a community forum, or if the poster is responding to a specific subject in the OP.

I do it because I have no children and don't care about saving any bandwidth for them.

It's not the bandwidth. It's the photons. If we don't start conserving before it's too late we will live in darkness.

When I first joined bassboatcentral.com 15 years ago I didn't know people quoted post. If the OP starts a thread and I'm the 15th poster and I want to reply to the 7th post then I quote it in my reply.

I will usually quote some of the original post, but only a relevant portion of it so that the reader of my reply will understand what I am talking about. Sometimes I may include the OP's picture if it is required, but I normally never include the OP's series of images.

Good one, Don!

Post #12 was REPOSTING the OP's original post.
This post is quoting the OP's original post.

I rarely see REPOSTING done.

Just maybe, its because half the 'seasoned' members can't stay on track of what the original question is without paragraph after paragraph of unwarranted and or unwanted elucidation.

Further elucidations self deleted.
