I agree with that.  you can also hit the quote button, but backspace and delete all but the part of the prev. post that is pertinent to your f/u comment.  It then makes more sense than quoting the whole thing including 4 pictures.  We are all learning.  
That's what I do now.....snip old all the old stuff and just show at most, two quotes before I reply. Hope that helps. That's another thing the other forums do....they must have auto software to do this....the pics are gone unless you want to see.

OMG, I recall that thread where the quotes got way out of control. It was repetitive, annoying, and stupid to keep stacking them up like that. It became nothing but clutter and it wasn't necessary in order to follow the conversation. In fact it made it harder to follow. Honestly, I was going say something to the effect of can we lighten up on the quote button when Jeff stepped in and thankfully ended the misery. LOL

A simple and cleaner way to respond to something a few posts back without needing the quote function is simply to use the person's name. "Doc, I've seen that a few times myself", "Dan, they used a different ignition that year." "Mike, regarding that whatever.." Cuts down on the clutter, especially if you are referencing just one point from a long post. :)
