Are we allowed to quote someone in answers ?

i know we do not have quote trees like groups
but can we
copy and paste a comment from another member so we can address this person with our opinion on their comment? like we used to do

i do not see anyone doing this anymore

is it s new rule
or
is there just mass paranoia

  • I still do it if I need to. But then I'm frequently oblivious to stuff going on around here.

  • I am gun shy
    I rarely do it anymore
    So some of my responses make me look like a loon or that I am replying to the OP

    Have had to clarify a couple of times in PMs :(

  • I've been doing it all along. Several times in the past few days, in fact. Never ever had a problem.

    I don't think you can do it from one question to another, or simply to insult.

  • If people were actually allowed to talk openly about what went on before, during, and after the last week, it might not be so bad. As it stands, everyone assumes the worst because they're not allowed to discuss the real reasons vs the suspected but not proven reasons.

  • Yes,
    We know some members don't have a problem.
    We know some aren't getting poofed or taking a forced vacation.
    We know some members have a "just deal with it" and "don't ask questions" mentality.
    We know some members are able to do things other members aren't allowed to do.

    But notice the word SOME as opposed to ALL

  • The question was, "Is it allowed?"

    Until I see a CM message saying it's not, then I cannot say it's not allowed for ANY members, whether some or all. I have no proof that it's not allowed.

    Your quote above was civil. Quoting to tell someone they're a (insert your favorite insult here) would NOT be civil.
