    ... how much bandwidth is wasted by the continual use of the "Quote Post" button when it is a really long post and/or containing photos?

    A page full of writing quoted with just one sentence highlighted and one line of witty reply...

    Just wondering...


    ...but when I shorten a quote I try to write "snipped" in the reply so readers know it is not a full quote.

    Am I a good boy?

    JJ :Cool:

    Doing this must waste bandwidth when you could do this...

    No you're not a good boy because you waste bandwidth with a big Tahoma font instead of the default use by plebs like me :roflmto::roflmto:

    I am such a good boy that I don't believe in wasting anything just because I am not paying for it...

    I always shut off the mains water tap the rare times I am at a site so as not to waste water even though the water is included in the site fee... :winky:

    Anyway... there is no such thing as free bandwidth... someone suffers somehow... (like using up more of your own data package downloading stuff you have already seen.)

    Not caring partic about the bandwidth, in fact for utterly selfish reasons in my case JJ - I ruddy well hate it too. Clags yer screen up with yards of the same old thing over and over again ad infinitum, to the degree that I miss the pithy half a line retort someone may have given at the bottom of it, because I just can't be arsed with it.

    Or plod through it again only to discover some highly original and individual Bright Spark has said, 'Me too'.

    Very sound and fair comment Jim.

    I pondered long and hard as to where to put my useless post...

    Obviously I made the wrong choice... maybe the other Jim will move it should he think it is spoiling the forum.

    If you send me your Paypal address and a rough calculation of the cost of your wasted data allowance I will repay you straight away.

    A certain French lady insists that you are quite magnificent with the stamina of a prime shire horse.
