>One small confusion that occurs because of the quick reply is that the readers do not know who the post is actually addressed to.

The rapid reply replies to the last replier. (now  THAT?S a fine sentence! :wink:

I'd like to see the rapid reply respond to all.

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

Regularly rapid replies respond to the right replier.

I know there was probably a lot of work put into adding the quick reply function to the message board, and I appreciate the effort.

However, since it replies to the last post made just before you hit the button, but you think you are replying to the last one made at the time that you last refreshed, it is all too common for someone to use the quick reply to compose a post, hit the button, and find that at least one (and often several, in the faster-moving forums) poster has made a post in the meantime.

I have noticed several misunderstandings that have resulted from this.

I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but in my opinion, those who have difficulty using the time-honored "reply" button shouldn't be coddled to by now having two different ways to goof things up.

I know it hurts to have to discard code that was lovingly and proficiently prepared and implemented, but in this case I suggest it might be better to remove the quick reply addition.

Sorry.

I don't use it, and I find that people who do, confuse me, for this very reason... But then a lot of people around here confuse me... :grin:

pinky, i actually think this confusion is a good thing.
it's forcing us to go back to the practice of mentioning who we are talking to, as i just did.

i dislike the dependency we have developed for the reply line, because sometimes i'm commenting to the whole thread, not just one person, but i am forced to pick one. if i've already replied i can just reply to myself, but if it's my first post in the thread, no dice.
