Which is of course why I'll never use that! Quoting one message in full is bad enough, but doing that for several is just bad form. And pruning all those quotes is a lot more work than just copy-and-paste the bits you want by hand.

Opera forums have a "quick quote" feature that's much nicer: you select some text you want to quote, hit the quick quote button, and only the selected text shows up as a quote. That's really useful (dependent on JavaScript, but it's a nice extra: normal quote is available as well).
