I think any thread that includes a post with 5 or more nested Quotes should be automatically deleted, as it's clearly reached a stage of nit-picking tit-for-tattery that is dead boring to normal people! Twisted Evil

(Perhaps there should be a special thread for Barrack-room lawyers where they can argue themselves blue in the face over such matters. Wink

It doesn't only happen in threads on legal stuff. Science, the Paranormal, and Politics (especially) all create opportunities for amateurs to go where specialists fear to tread!)

True, but even we supernormals get pissed off with endless tit-for-tattery. Wink

This whinging was seriously off topic on the original thread. The mods are well aware that some posters have an allergy to the use of 'quote' tags. That's their problem.
