Especially when it's a super long post. Unless you are quoting it to prove a point by under lining what they said or something. I don't know it's just weird. I'm sure somebody will quote my post just to be a biotch : D

Probably because the person quoting the OP is speaking specifically to them.  When I'm answering in a thread, I quote the person that I'm talking to which is rarely the OP.  I can't quite figure out why OP's think everyone is talking to them because they are not.  Unless I specifically quote an OP, whatever I'm saying is a general statement to everyone, not just the OP.

But if you're not quoting another reply ...then to me it's kinda obvious you're talking to OP. I can also see if you are quoting somethong op said in the replies. But to quote the ORIGINAL post is just..ehhh. Ya know? But whatever lol. There's nothing interesting in here tonite so I thought I would just point that out. Lol
