    Default You talkin' to me, bub?

    Quoth Taggart: “If you reply to a post which gets deleted, then your post will go too.”

    So moderators can see who replied to what posts? For other members, this can only be known if a quote is made. I’ve always felt this to be a serious deficiency since it makes multi-sided conversations difficult (or impossible) to follow.

    So I have to ask: Is there any way to have the forum software display which post is being responded to? Poster and time or post number would be fine…

    No, moderators, like other members can only see if a post is being responded to if it is quoted either using the quote feature or by selective cut and paste or by by simply saying I disagree with @KenOC's position. Taggart obviously quoth too laconically.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.
