The bad quoting thread

The bad quoting thread
We've all seen it. Religious trolls come on here and can't quote properly, won't quote properly and don't want to know how.

They get away with it because of herd immunity, i.e. everyone else quotes properly. So their text is larger, in different colours, bold, interspersed throughout your quote. What they say sticks out while what everyone else becomes like a background noise. But if we all did that the thread would soon become unreadable. But they don't care about that. All they want is for their replies to be seen and for no one to be able to respond to them, at least not without significant more work for anyone responding editing the quotes.

So I thought I would create a thread where we can debate about whatever you want. The rule in this thread is that no one should quote properly.

Let's see what kind of mess we end up with!

Absolutely. It will be a test of our ingenuity to fuck things up.

I don't think I'll participate.  Feels like too much of an homage to Little Rik.

This might require too much work.
