PLEASE - A simple suggestion for all who reply to postings...
8 I know this may bug many of you.  But how often do we see replies to threads - in particular those with lots of pictures involved - in which the replier hits the "reply with quote" button!!!!  By hitting the correct button - the "reply to thread" button (the first one to the left) - you then start with a fresh page and you can begin typing.  Unfortunately, when you hit "Reply with Quote" button, what then occurs is that the entire previous post is repeated in the reply (photos and all).

I see this more often than not and it becomes a real pain to have to cursor down past a multitude of photos and/or paragraphs (which we've already read earlier) to find perhaps one comment by the person replying.

So PLEASE - when replying, just hit the "Reply to Thread" button....NOT the "Reply with Quote" button.  You will make things much easier for most of us.
