When did I do that ? Like respond to people in one reply or something ? Okay. It's not spam though.

MochaBerries, you can combine quoted posts by leaving one new post open in a tab, hitting the "reply" button on the posts you want to answer by opening them in new tabs (click the middle mouse button or the scroll wheel on "reply" button, or right-click "Reply" and choose to open in new tab), then copy/pasta the quotes from these into the main post, and write your answers to the quotes. That way you don't post 4 times in a row, like on the previous page.

You can also use people's names instead of the "reply" button (like I did in this post). Just don't do the @ + name all the time. Gets annoying with all the "you've got a PM - no wait, it's just another mention in a post" warnings.

Quotes are better used for highlighting something in a post, not for quoting the entire post. I mostly delete the text I'm not interested in, and keep in what I'm actually answering. If I'm answering the post directly above mine, I use the poster's name, or just answer without quotes or names if it fits in. If you're using a quote to answer answer a post on a previous page, they're more helpful and less annoying than if you're answering something on the same page, simply because you don't have to go back and scroll through several pages to find the original post. In most cases I use the "quick reply" box at the bottom, and don't bother with putting in names or quotes.

If you want to highlight a couple of things from the same post (like Rosebine did below - and yes, there's an "edit" button, and I use it almost too frequent), you can copy the entire quote while in editing mode, paste it in a couple of times, and put in the parts you want to highlight, so you get the right name to the right quote. But use this sparingly. Best used with very long posts, when you only want to comment on a few bullet points.
