In some cases it would seem that nested quotes would be preferable within a post. Perhaps this could be a user-defined option?

Hey Greg,

We discussed having nested quotes about 4 years ago here:

Using the Multi-Quote This Message feature

If you read through that thread, you'll see that an existing vB product was installed and tried, found to have some kind of issue, and disabled (in fact it's still installed but disabled). The consensus at that time was that nested quotes wasn't a feature most felt was needed, and there are ways to manually nest quotes via cutting and pasting.

By default, vB strips quotes from the content of a post being quotes (so there is no nesting of quotes), and we added some custom code to strip other items from quotes as well (such as images, graphs, videos) to cut down on the resources being loaded onto our pages.

If it turns out that people would like nested quotes, as an option each user can turn on/off in their settings, I would be glad to try to make that happen at some point. :)
