    Can you please clarify TD - I don't see what is wrong.

      TD does it really matter how some people link a quote to their reply? In my mind no it doesn’t. as long as people are replying and posting that’s what matters. By pointing out this is like the spelling police people we used to have on the forum.

        Quoted posts should be in a grey box.

        Often it is an edit that deletes the quote markers

        If you see QUOTE in the text it has usually gone wrong

        It's post #16 on the thread, on my phone my previous link(second one) gets the wrong post.

        Thought I checked it on the pc.

            And? 🤷🏻*♀️ You just read the whole post like I did with your making a point one. Maybe it’s due to the format they’re using, or their phone/pc/iPad?

              Hi TD, I have seen that happening but didn't realise what caused it and the effect it had - worth looking out for as I agree it makes for more difficult reading.
