Would it make sense to add a popup-window when people do a reply-quote to a message stating something like
Quote:
There is no need to quote entire messages, use of this function should be limited to editing the quoted text and removing excess words. A quote should only be used to highlight parts of a message. Unlike older systems, this site shows all messages in a thread so there is no need to copy entire posts in replies.

It truly isn't necessary. Of course, were you a disk space vendor, you'd probably make over-quoting mandatory. But it's frowned upon in every technical forum in which I participate.

I guess quoting started with the 1 time posters that later edited their original post making no scense of the replies they got.

Never the less I also agree there is no need to quote more then is needed for the answer.

It's also a mechanism for a Premium user to expose Premium content to the world - intentionally or not.
