    ok..maybe other people have noticed this..

    in the forums..

    1) write a post
    2) then go to the previous poster, and act like you are going to quote them.
    3) when the screen pops up, copy the quote and all that fun jazz then hit back button
    4) go to your original post and edit it, -- paste the quote and all that fun jazz thats with it into it.
    5) you will then notice it gives you an option to Vote for the post (i assume it is meant to say save)

    weird..

    oh ok well since that is 2 years old, i guess MR likes to have people vote for their edits.

    That's not unique to MR; it is something that is inherent to the Jelsoft vB software that is used by MR and other forum sites.

    It's been this way for so long now that I just consider it a feature. :rolleyes:

    Nah, the vB creators consider it a feature too.

    I consider it a right of passage.

    Voting on which post you deem necessary and most fitting to quote.
    As a female, having the right to vote is important to me anywhere I go. Please don't take it away from me.
