The whole point in having the quote option IS so that you CAN reply to a certain person WITHIN the thread, and not to the entire thread. You can remove what you don't want in the quote, and reply to just the point that you want to address.and sometimes it is even a bit confusing as to whether someone is actually responding to the initial post or someone else's comment.
Have you tried the various styles available under preferences? Maybe that will help you.I'm really struggling with the washed-out color of the default font. It's very light gray instead of black and I can hardly read it. I would really appreciate it if someone would please change this as soon as possible.
I am just kind of bummed out visiting here....feel I have much to say and much to contribute, but this format is so jumbled, I cannot possibly do so. I really do miss the old format; it seems like so many members have jumped ship
This new format makes my brain go into instant overload -- there is just too much of everything on every page -- too much info, too many headings, too many ads, and it is far too difficult to find the basic things I need to navigate the forum. Simple is best for us! Like some other posters here, I too do not use the Phoenix site because I find its layout overwhelming.
