I can send you your Sakeriver username if you like. I don't have the password, but if you've forgotten it, I can set a temporary one for you.

Nothing interesting ever happens at SR. That's why I never post there.

Excessive quoting is also a problem when it takes the focus away from the larger point the original author was trying to make. After all, most people don't just throw out a bunch of equally weighted assertions in a post. Usually there is some larger point they are making. If you break it down into ten smaller points, and attack each one separately, the larger point tends to get completely lost.
This is true. I'm not sure it's problematic, or indicative of poor behavior.
It is a problem if a person attacks someone's position in a thread, but ignores the main point(s) that person is giving to support that position - excessive breaking down of the language of a post is just one way of doing that. It's one thing to go off on a side-tangent; it's another thing to go off on many simultaneous side-tangents, one for each sentence of a post.
