As can be seen by Eric's post (#15), a quote of a quote is not working correctly.

yes, yes, Eric - I realize this is not 'On Topic'

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Quotes within quotes don't work unless you use MultiQuote.

That's a lady bard... as in Shakespeare; in reference to your possibly inadvertent lampooning of "To be or not to be; that is the question" in the title to this thread. ;)

I don't have a need to multiquote too often, but I guess I need to go test this and see how it actually works. ;)

Interesting.

Literally need to quote from the individual posts. It won't nest them. Very much like it did with the old software.

MultiQuote is much cleaner than quotes within quotes.

I like MultiQuote because it is then possible to respond to two different posts in one reply without confusing one with the other.

I have never really tried the multi-quote before as I have only done them manually but that I may try it out B)

I just realized that if I type a response and then scroll up and click quote, it automatically posts the quoted text instead of opening up a reply box like the old forum did.
Neat stuff :thumbsup:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

It looks like you clicked both MultiQuote and Quote so the post was included twice.
