Ok, so I have been on a forum where "quote walls" were looked down upon.  This particular forum was post analysis heavy and people would get very agitated at having to scroll through previously posted info. 

Default quoting posts is the lazy man's way to look and feel relevant.  Snippet quoting is the responsible way  to do it where we can see a bullet point and then see an aswer that immediately relates to it.  Its a form of forum etiquette.

The best way to do this is to hit the quote button and then go to the top and start isolating the particular parts of the post that you want to respond to. 

The first response can include the original quote header ([quot.e={user} etc] and when the part of the post that you are referencing ends, you add the tag
Code: [Select]
[/quote]
Now you type your response below it.

Then move to the next section that you want to reference and put a tag at the beginning of
Code: [Select]
[quote]and repeat the same as the first point.

Don't get me wrong.  I couldn't care less if people do quote walls or not.  I am just validating that it is an objective concern in the fourm based world. :)
