Guys, please, if you screw up the quote function by deleting part of the quote commands while cutting out text, either click the edit button and go back and fix it, or if you don't know how, delete the whole post and do it over again. But don't let it sit there screwed up! If you can't do either, then DON'T cut quotes before posting them. Just leave them alone.
Also, if you see that someone has screwed up the quote function, DON'T quote the screwed up quote (unless you know how to patch it up as you go) because then quotes start getting attributed to posters who didn't make them. I just spent several minutes figuring out who really said which quotes and repairing them in a whole string of posts, and I shouldn't have to do that.
