Maybe I have misunderstood the gist of this thread but isn't the 'out of context' quote supposed to have an alternative interpretation, in some way juxtaposed to its original when taken 'in context'?

Yes, this once good thread has been entirely ruined.

Practically everything I post in here is taken out of context. You do realise that right?

No, you are posting commentary. I don't think you understand the idea of this thread.

No, I'm posting comments out of their original context and then making my own comment referring to the new, assumed context.

I'm fascinated to know how you can say whether or not my posts are being taken out of their original context considering you been in precisely 0% of mine and Ferdy's conversations so would have no way of knowing the original context anyway?

Clearly, you don't understand the idea of this thread. You two, and now others, have messed it up.

You post a quote taken out of context so it appears to mean something different than was intended. Unless there's more to it than that (in which case the thread title is overly misleading) then I'm pretty sure I do get it because that's exactly what I've been doing.

If you feel there is more to it than that then feel free to enlighten me.

It is for quoting of posts, not your off-line conversations. The original context is apparent and requires no commentary.

Why should only posts on TTA be open to being taken out of context?

Not quite sure what you're trying to say in the second part.
