Actually, I am just joking, I am far from a drug seeker. I am disabled due to a damaged spinal cord, and at 1 time due to a pulmanary embolism I could not take asprin because I was on blood thinner. Since I could not take excedrin for pain, I was forced to take Norco 10, an opioid. He prescribed me 30 every 6 months, which was never enough. Now I am off the blood thinner and still get 30 Norco every 6 months, but so rarely take them that I have about 300 built up. I still can't make myself not get the prescription filled because I still remember needing them badly and not being able to get them. They have tested Hydrocodone that was more than 20 years old and they were still over 95% effective. I had rather have them and not need them than need them and not have them. All these people abusing these drugs are making it harder for doctors to prescribe opioids, and harder for patients who need them to get them.

I went through this also for my disability. The only difference is I was cut off because another patient was caught abusing theirs. It's ridiculous.

I don’t have a problem quoting the post people are replying to. Frankly I think it should be the default when we press “reply” because it clarifies things (how many times have we seen posts without context from those who don’t (know how to) quote).

What I don’t understand is why, when we reply and quote, must it include ALL the nested/previous replies and not just that one post you’re responding to. The result is such that if you’re viewing on your mobile, it’s literally one letter per line. It’s ridiculous and illegible. Surely someone can fix it.

Because most of the time, people just want to participate without performing quote cleanup. 

If you are participating in conversation, you can remove nested quotes yourself. It's a piece of cake on laptop/pc

It's not so easy to do on mobile.  If you're on mobile, choosing desktop mode helps with easier viewing.

Been using the mobile client more, couldn't even switch to desktop mode apparently and can't quote on it at all.  I promise you I know how to quote though Smiley Happy.

 

I agree there should be a better nesting bit, probably last 2 posts by default and the rest <snip>.

The point is that there should be no need to do “quote cleanup”; the default should be to just quote the post you’re replying to (without all the other nested posts).

 

A lot of other forums manage to do it, so I assume it’s not difficult.
