I have silly question

I'm back after a 5ish month self imposed exile and upon returning I have notice that a lot of posters are not quoting the posts they are answering/replying to. Is there a threaded view I am not aware of? That would explain the apparent change.

Right. This, or have been ignored/blocked by other users. That also can hide quotes within a post, making it hard to tell that a reply actually is regarding something specific.
I don't think that's the case because I can follow the thread of the conversation, it's just that some folks seem to reply without quoting (which gives me reddit vibes, which is why I thought maybe it was due to a threaded view).

I'd check to see if there are any missing post #'s on the few pages of the thread you think the quote is missing from, just to be sure.

Does your “silly question “ come with a “silly walk”? If so, the ministry would like to speak to you.



(Sorry don’t know why that came to mind when I saw the thread title. I’m amusing no one but myself but I’m still posting this. Carry on)

Not sure why nobody's bothering to give you a straight answer.

The forum software strips out quotes from people you have ignored as well as people that ignore you, even in replies from unrelated people.

For them their replies look just like they wanted them to.

Not saying this must be the case for you, just that it could be the explanation.

Easiest way to check: log out (or use a different browser) and then visit the thread. Another way is to use the EN World app, a reskinned Tapatalk client that can't understand the Xenforo ignore system. If you now see lots more posts and reply-quotes you have your answer.

Hope that helps
