This is perhaps a particular bugbear of mine, but I find the quoting of long posts just to make a one line comment somewhat irritating. Like this for example, though no criticism of said poster intended. Would it be useful to truncate quotes (or have the option to do so in the Admin CP) at a certain point when they're copied into the editor? Say include the first and last sentence - that and the arrow link are enough that people can figure out which post it is and if they've been following the discussion they probably know anyway. Personally, I much prefer to see 'I think John's right', or 'I like John's idea of . . . ' Or a 'see full post' link / button which will asynchronously load in the full quote to the quote box. Then if people actually feel a genuine need to paste in the entire quote, or replace the truncated version with actual specific points they want to respond to, they still can.
