This forum does have the most awkward quoting style I've seen on the internet.

Now I have to charge my battery so I can be bitchy on other subjects.

No forum is perfect you take the rough with the smooth or else ship yourself out. For example I find it extremely frustrating when people post embedded video as I only have mobile pay as you go internet and one slip of the finger while scrolling activates the video and I lose a ton of credit, however I would NOT dream of asking people not to post videos, why ? because its MY damn problem not anyone else's and it would also be incredibly arrogant and controlling and selfish to ask everyone to alter their posting style and habits just for me.
Have you considered why people quote other peoples posts ? Its really rather simple, its so everyone else can see at a glance who and what that person is replying to, if people did not quote others, threads would quickly become jumbled and unworkable. I am slightly dubious that you have only been reading for a year, I used to help teach illiterate adults to read and not one of them was capable of using the word egregious after only 12 months of literacy, but in case I'm wrong........
Congratulations on learning to read, it opens a whole new world, stick with it keep practising and learning and it will become much easier for you over time. Good luck to you.

Adey67, if, instead of imbedding a video I just posted the link to it wouldn't that make the likelihood of you accidentally clicking it worse? Just curious.

No the link is smaller and easier to avoid on a small mobile screen, I've got pretty good at avoiding the vids now though but I thought it was a good example to give the op some perspective.

RE: Useless recitation of previous posts
When several people respond on a thread it's often difficult to tell who a poster is responding to...the quote feature makes it clear.

I find it hard to believe that there is a forum out there somewhere that is the 'perfect' setup for all users.

If the OP really wanted to help, perhaps (s)he or one of the others with gripes could make suggestions instead of bitching.
