I actually prefer the way the extra space looks. Plus, it becomes harder to read all bunched up while I'm writing & previewing.

I can't guarantee anything, this whole idea of not putting a space in after a quote is just shear madness to me....but I'll see what I can do.

It's a matter of the space between the quote and person's reply to that quote.

Because he didn't use the quote function the way I wanted him to despite multiple warnings.

I don't like extra spaces after quotes, but what I find a lot more annoying is when people quote whole posts instead of just the relevant portions that they are responding to.

When using the quote function, please do not put a blank between the end of the quote and your reply. It is unnecessary. The quote function adds a blank line on either side of the quote automatcially and the double blank line is ugly. This has been bugging me for awhile and I'm finally adding it the rules. If you don't see the double line in your old posts, it's because I already edited them.

But it's a force of habit. I can't help putting a ENTER after the quote. See?

I try to avoid quoting, as I always seem to fuck up the coding.
