Question Did you know you can edit quotes?

Find a post on a thread and press Quote. You will discover that by going between their quotation marks you may edit their words, then post it and the quote will still show up as a real quote?

Some use this feature to remove unnecessary parts of the quote, singling out the part their wish to comment on. Replacing their words could spark a debate.

Will this present a problem or is every one honest enough to not do that?

Good because today I just realized someone could make it look like you said something you didn't say!

Yes, but you could always go back to the original post and see what the real words were so it shouldn't be a problem

I understand your point ofview, but I think most people can see what the original quote is if it's in the same thread

I don't think it is a problem. You can see the original post. People probably wouldn't do that, anyway.

Default Re: Did you know you can edit quotes?

I don't really find this as a problem ....
Most people wouldn't do that to begin with, but if they did ....
if it actually became a debate, people could easily press that green arrow, that leads to the original . . . and if they read the original ... what do you think is gonna happen?
But good thought though ... I never really came to think about someone doing that.

I find it very helpful when I want to quote a long post and just comment on a small piece of it

And as others have said, most people would not edit for the wrong reasons and you can always click the green box to go back to the original post
