One of the things that is clogging up the forum are individuals that are quoting posts that are many paragraphs in length, with a one sentence reply, which generally, if it required any quoting at all, a sentence or two would have sufficed.
This is a ridiculous practice and if you ever tried to follow a thread on your phone, you would realize how much it degrades the user experience of the forum. These no reason for this other than being unaware, lazy, inconsiderate - or, any combination thereof.
It would be nice if the mods could bring this to the attention of the most flagrant perpetrators of this practice on a continual basis until they relent. I have nicely brought it to the attention of more than one individual, but in the usual display of, "I don't care," my entreaties have gone ignored. It's the old, "Hooray, for me and screw everyone else," syndrome.
That, said - I'm sure this will get the same response as my request for a current status on whether or not 'self-promotion' posts are still against forum rules and should be reported. I'm taking all bets and giving good odds!
