Folks, if you use the quote function to quote another poster in your post, either leave it alone or, if you edit the quote, make sure that you haven't screwed it up when you post it. I'm talking about accidentally deleting one of the brackets, or the slash in the quote closing command, those kind of things.

If your post appears with the quote screwed up, use the edit function to fix it. If you can't figure out how to fix it, delete the post and start over; don't just leave it there.

Also, if you see a post with a screwed up quote, don't quote it unless YOU are willing to clean up the error. Otherwise, things start to compound until the post makes no sense.

Don't leave these things for the mods to clean up. I've been seeing a rash of them lately, and sometimes by the second or third quote in a string, it's so screwed up that I can't figure out how to fix it. Thank you.
