Please trim quotes

Sometimes it's useful to have a little bit of a previous message in a post, just to make it clear what the response you are posting refers to. Usually, if you want to read what an earlier poster in a thread has written, you only have to scroll up, or go back a page. Therefore, there's no need to quote the entire post you're replying to, so please keep quoted sections short.

Please keep your Signature and Personal Text short

These two bits get displayed every time you post. Other folk might read them once or twice, but after that they're mostly clutter. If you can't bear to leave them blank then please keep them short; a few words for your Personal Text and a line (or maybe two) for Signature is more than enough.
