Using Quotes properly

We see a lot of posts with a cut & paste of "so & so said such and such." 

Each post has a quote button, please use it if you wish to quote someone. If you only want to quote a portion, it's easy to edit out what you don't want to include in the quote. Typically it wouldn't be a problem, but members are using the cut & paste method to increase their points.

Your posts will be deleted if we feel you're simply trying to boost your points.

I'm not going to be a snitch,

I'm not going to be a snitch, but if we happen to see that there are certain places that it is still happening, what would you like us to do?  Hit the "Flag as offensive" tab or something?  I don't care if it happens now and then, but I am guessing that you are addressing this now because it is happening quite often.

I haven't seen it happening

I haven't seen it happening anymore.  I've seen lots of quotes but using the quote feature since this was posted.  I think people will figure out how to increase points, but once they realize it is against the rules will stop.  I did notice that in the blog section, there isn't a quote feature.

OK, I will make a change to the way I have been doing things. I have been using the cut and paste method of quoting and I will get that changed here starting now.
