CS> Stas. I replied to another on the IPV6. This was then quoted by one
CS> who adds initials and quoted a 3rd time in your reply.
AV> The quote prefix MUST be /^[[:blank:]]*[[:alnum:]]*>+^[[:blank:]]*/
not according to the proposal FSC-0032... the word "MUST" does not appear in
the section concerning newly quoted text... neither does it appear in the
section about the /optional/ initials OR in the section about previously quoted
CS> Not all quoting software adds initials. Some wraps the text of
CS> others. My 'international' word was wrapped by another who quoted
CS> me. You can see that from the > markers.
AV> It was your editor which adds " > " in front of " YZ> " instead of
AV> simply increasing the quote level (" YZ>> ". This _does_ _not_
AV> conform to common practice, and thus is annoying.
you are being too easily annoyed, alexey...
CS> Technical? Yes but not something unremarkable even though there are
CS> fewer softwares in use now. BBS quoting is much like mine.
AV> All known BBSes which produce more than 1000 messages per day use
AV> FSC-0032 quoting style.
i rather doubt that but i do like your use of the qualifier "known" ;)
CS> If you have one like that, feel free to suggest it if diocumentation

isn't worth a hill of beans... some would do good to remember that but many
assume incorrect things all too often...
CS> Personally, I am utterly tired of the debate on what softwares quote
CS> in a way that others want them to. Mayjor :yawm: factor here after
CS> being beaten up over it from 2001.
AV> Yes, showing your incompetence (including the unability to set up
AV> modern software) is much easier than learning something new...
be careful what you call "modern", my friend...
CS> Shall we close this quoting thread? Basically everyone needs to have
CS> a clue when you see >> that there was another.
AV> Don't tell anything on behalf of everyone unless you can prove
CS> This isnt rocket science. It's not even remotely new.
AV> Yes, the rocket science is much easier... Been there, checked that,
AV> got the (already expired) prohibition to leave the country for 10
ahhh... so that's the problem ;)
