It is not something new, and I'd describe it as his posting style. And IF your going to mod posting styles, then there are plenty that you could do a some tweaking with

Doesn't quoting not get picked up by the ignore filter? So if you keep quoting yourself you (in effect) force people to pick up your comments.

That's my guess why he does it.

i would not quote my own post.....would you?....it seems kinda sad
The ting is that it isn't something new from him. As long as I can recall he has quoted himself.

LOL.

Mods get asked about status of the stale Papp-smeargate, Susan says it is not resolved and locks the thread.

Yeah, after she erases all of the "incriminating" questions. Transparency!

Was that the thread locked up which was started by Granv??

I wondered what could have happened there because everything was edited out. I just figured Hugh had crossed the line again and was edited by a mod.

If they were serious about getting it resolved all they'd have to do is hire a lawyer, pretty simple, FM isn't going to spend money on them for just a thread threat.

While quotes don't get picked up by the ignore filter, surely it's still a post by a poster that is on ignore?

So if you had Hog on ignore and didn't have me on ignore, and I quoted Hog, you'd see Hog's post in my post quoting it. But if you have Hog on ignore, surely his posts won't appear even if they have his previous content quoted in it?

Good point. I stand corrected.

The $64K question, and it does not take a genius to figure it out but it might take someone other than a mod. What is the purpose of the post below and all the others from this guy that are just like it?

No. The world isn't listening to you guys. Sorry.
