Can we be allowed to have at least 20 quotes per post? :crazy:

No.

It should be no more than 10.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Um, why "should" it be no more than 10? :strokebeard2:

Because I said so.

Because it's half the number you desire.

Because excessive quotes make a thread unpleasant to read.

Because if people aren't able to follow along without that many quotes they should stick to Dr. Suess books.

The number ought to be a power of two. Or one less than a  power of two.
Or one more... that'll confuse people.

She made a video:

Powers of two are important to computers. Any time you have to choose an arbitrary limit (like quote depth) you can pick a power of two for the limit and then claim there's some underlying machine- or OS-based reason for this crippling of user functionality. 16 or 32 is better than 20. Likewise 15 or 31 would work.
But 17 is obviously just picked. 42 serves the same purpose.
