I just answered a thread and I'm very dissappointed that it came out as a load of rubbish, my next post was fine- seems something isn't right on here.

I tried quoted 3 people who had already posted on here- won't be doing that again

Copy and paste from web pages (including this site) don't work properly - some of the underlying (HTML) code is somehow included.

What you can do is copy & paste text into Notepad (if using Windows), then copy & paste back from Notepad into a forum post - this clears the rubbish leaving only the text.  Fiddly but works.

If edit was fixed, we could at least use that instead..

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply. I do use Windows so Notepad is an option.

I was just having a moan, as I was trying to reply to a post using quotes made on this site.  I was using the quote button on here, which when I was typing look fine, just annoyed me as I was trying to add to a discussion that what was already ongoing.I had spent some time typing my response.

I'm with you on the edit
