Hehehe... you have made your point, Ivan. :-) Thanks (to realitybites as well) for sharing your thoughts on the issue.
Quote full post, or select text to quote - each method has its pros and cons. I do not prefer one to the other (ok... I prefer the miniBB default way a bit more), because they both require some action on my part (highlight text I need to quote, or remove text I don't need from quote).
I think the feedback from my forum user, which I received this morning, was prompted by the fact that the quote function was not working at all for this user (please refer to this existing thread "Quote function - support for Safari
" for details).
To realitybites: thanks for your offer to help. If you can think of a way to implement 'auto quote complete post', please share. I will only seriously consider changing the quote behaviour when I receive more complaints/requests from users.
