Poll #615505 Quoting

What forms of quoting are you cool with?

The kind where the original message appears under the new message, divided by a line.
The kind where the old message is quoted with preceding greater than signs and possibly a brief line. The person then enters their message above the old one.
The kind where the old message is quoted with preceding greater than signs and possibly a brief line. The person then enters their message below the old one, or responding section by section.
The kind where the old message is just tacked on as an attachment, and the new message makes up the body.
The kind where the person I'm communicating with assumes I have the old message and knows what the heck they're blathering on about.

What forms of quoting do you prefer to use?

I prefer new message/dividing line/old message.
I prefer new message/quoted old message.
I prefer quoted old message/new message (or new message interspersed with old message).
I prefer making the original message an attachment.
Quoting is for the old and senile. Down with quoting! Smash the state!

Why am I posting this to my personal journal instead of fridaypoll?

fridaypoll is as dead as my level sixty warlock on Uldum.
Everyone who reads fridaypoll reads my journal... or should.
I meant to post this on Thursday, but never got around to it. So it wouldn't have ended up there anyway.
You're listening to The Fugs, and they inspire a sense of rebellion.
deepFreeze has yet to unfreeze my head.
I'm an egomaniac.
ruxxell inspires me. He is the wind beneath my wings.
The Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP is pretty freakin' sweet, actually.

What are you doing? Shouldn't you be working/sleeping/playing/eating/living/loving/whatever?

What should I wear for the Admissions event tomorrow?

Feeling: working working
Listening to: The Fugs, I Couldn't Get High

Your poll just confuses me more than anything else.
All I know about quotes is that I like reading almost all of your posts, because you have those kuh-razy links all the way through, yet the thing reads smoothly over time. I don't know if you have honed these skills over years, or if this is just something that you do well naturally, but it makes me want to emulate you, at least to this degree, if not further.
I mean - do you write your whole post, and then just go back and make links, or do you base a lot of your writing about funny links you've found? Somewhere in the middle?
I realize that the quotes thing and your style of writing with links to other sites are different topics, but you made me think about it, and now I won't be able to sleep at night until I know... :)
