that's what I was thinking might be the only advantage, however, that added complexity is generally not needed and just makes it harder on the user.
that said, if the added depth of quotes is desired, it is still posssible with vbulletin style quoting. The way it is now is just too complex IMO.
It isn't complicated, it is just different. You have to hit the MQ button on each reply, just like on the old forum. You still have to hit reply, like you did before. The only thing now is you click the QUOTE word, and either hit the Add All, or pick and choose as you type your response. That isn't complicated, it is just different and you have a click or two you didn't before.
AGAIN, there are going to be continuing changes. There might be some tweaking of this to eliminate a click perhaps, I don't know.
