Don't You Wish That...

People would read threads before posting. Assuming that most people on CF can read that is...

People would learn how to quote a few lines properly...

Come on now you have been here a while and know that after around the 12 post the replies are about the posts prior, not the asked about topic question.

Re: Don't You Wish That...

No, I don't think that the early Rocnas (Canadian and NZ made) should be replaced. They're fine as is.

My pet peeve is people who quote a hundred lines of text, only to comment on one small point or utter, "Yeah, I think so too." Grrrr.

The "Cruising on $500 a month" thread is a case in point.

Re: Don't You Wish That...

Although I have seen posts well into a thread that addressed the topic of the thread and not the content of the thread.

Now, back on topic.

Don't you wish that ... people would learn how to do a proper search before posting questions that have already been answered many times.

Re: Don't You Wish That...

I need someone to show me (lead me by the hand ) step by step how to multi quote.

I think it would be cool to whack-a-bash a whole bunch of stuff in one post instead of adressing each post individually.
