I've been wondering the same thing.

Also, a multi-quote button.

The short and to the point answer is that members used no discretion in quoting. That is, they quote the entire text of long posts, just to make an answer to only one point of the quoted text.

In other words, the function was abused. Because of that, we have removed the buttons, but the function remains. It has to be manually used.

How do you do that?

Read this thread: How Do I Quote From A Post? (http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=323215)

It's up in the "stickies" at the top of the index for this section of TFL.

I assume you mean the "Post with quote" button that is found in each post - at other websites.

We discontinued that button years ago here at TFL. The thread above in this forum explains in detail how to quote from a post: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=323215

Al beat me to it! :)

Makes sense. One of those double-edged swords in any forum!
