What's up with KellyB's user name in post #5? It looks weird. Anyone else see it?
post #22 of 26
Wolfmama, I've been meaning to post two things here. 1) If I'm doing multiple quotes from the same person I don't put their name in each time. If my whole post only has quotes by one person, even if I divide them quotes up, I still only write in their name once. I guess I thought people would know. 2) I know that sometimes people purposely exclude the poster's name because they have said something really ridiculous. It's a good way to not point fingers or embarass them.

Those are my two exceptions. Otherwise, I agree, add the name.

KellyB left MDC. She had her account closed.

I'm pleased... This was kind of a vent after reading a long thread in News and Current events. Multiple posters did not include names--made it hard to follow a complex discussion. When people qoute people, sometimes I like to go look at the context.
