Using the "Quote" feature

Folks,
I spend quite a bit of my valuable moderating time editing posts to remove unnecessary quotes. I do this to keep both myself and you from seeing the same posts over and over again when two members are discussing back and forth.

Quick question for those of you who just hit the "quote" button every time you answer a another member. Would you repeat, word for word, everything someone said to you as you talk with them in person? Of course you wouldn't and the same thing applies here. There is no reason at all to quote someone who posts immediately above you in the thread.
Naturally, if you are replying to someone who posted earlier in the thread, with several other replies in between or is on a different page, then the use of the quote is perfectly applied.

I would hope that those of you who do just hit the quote button when replying to a member post would take notice of my words above, and if you don't, be advised that your posts may disappear into never never land instead of being edited to fix the improper use of the quote feature.
Thank you.:)

Since people don't seem to care, I will just continue to do as I think best.
Thank you to all who did participate and made their views known.

The input is low because people don't really care, and you are trying to back your actions because you don't like them and are trying to make this a big deal.

I don't know if you'll get much more input on something as trivial as this.

Well, as usual, many didn't follow my directions on answering with a simple "yes" or "no" so I am going to continue to do as I have been but leave the thread going for more input. It was just about impossible to get a score done with so many vague answers. Please, just yes or no.

In all honesty, the overuse of the quote feature doesn't annoy me terribly, but it is somewhat irksome when used in excess. So my vote is to edit however you wish, and make your job easier for yourself. Reward yourself for a job well done. 🙂
