Jag,
When you come back,,,I'll show you how to use the quote feature.
I think you either don't know or you don't like it.
See you later.
Wondering,
Thanks. Yeah show me how to use the quote feature.
I already know the quote code which is ]quote[ . . . ]/quote[
but when you use the quote feature, does that not still hide
most of the quote? If so then I prefer to do it this way:

"When you come back,,,I'll show you how to use the quote feature."__Wondering

. . . because then the quote is there in front of the reader and not partially hidden where you have to click to expand the entire quote.

But maybe there is something I do not know . . . so help me learn something.

If you take your mouse and highlight a section, it gives you two options.
1. Reply. This starts a new reply quoting just the section you highlighted.

2. Quote. I don't really use this.
Going back to reply, you can highlight subsequent sections of another's post and select reply. It will insert the selection as a quote, as I've done below.

Only if you quote the whole thread.
Your already highlighting text and doing a copy paste. Instead, just click the reply option

Hi Jag,,,,
just got back from food shopping.
It's like a war in the big supermarkets. Luckily I have a nice small one
right near my house.

OK. The quote feature.
Very simple.

If you want to answer to the entire post, just click on POST REPLY down at the right hand side of the screen.

But maybe you'd like to answer it comment by comment....like you've been doing with me.

So this is how it's done....and nothing will be hidden.

Start at the beginning of the members post and go to the point where you want to reply.
Do that thingy you already know.
Put this sign [
Then write in it /QUOTE
Then close with this sign ]

( I can't really show you because it'll actually break up my post!)

Then write what you want to write.

Go to the next paragraph of the member that you wish to comment.

At the beginning of the paragraph
Put this sign [
Then write in it QUOTE
Then close it with this sign ]

At the end of the paragraph
Put this sign [
Then write in it /QUOTE
Then close it with this sign ]

Then write what you want to write.


Try it with this post.
It's easy.

As far as Cuomo goes, he says that, but some of the things he has done and allowed I simply cannot agree with it. I'm thinking he may use that sentence to justify himself and his ungodly worldview in order to get away with inflicting suffering. That being said on the topic of suffering:

I would think it depends on the degree of suffering and how the individual handles it. It's also hard to say that suffering benefits you if it kills you in the process.

If someone was in a terrible accident where they lost their leg, one individual might resort to drugs, alcoholism, and suicidal behavior while the other would still grieve their loss, but turn it into something good and focus on doing as much "normal" stuff as they can. Someone in a wheel chair told they may never walk again may resort to similar behaviors listed above in their hopelessness or they are going to do everything they can to try to get out of that wheelchair and say they will do it one day and have a more positive outlook on getting through each day. I've seen both sides of this coin, but of course it applies to more than just physical ailments.

There are some things in life that I have been through that were a form of "suffering" to me, but God has gotten me through and I have grown through them.

Suffering can open our eyes to things we never would have thought about if we weren't suffering. Although, I don't think we should purposefully ever inflict suffering on ourselves or others. Suffering does happen and of course we don't like to suffer, but having God makes the difference.
