Quoting capabilities for MeFi mail? Yeah, I know, it's not meant to be a full-fledged mail client, but it's annoying when someone responds to something you said and you have to go back to your sent folder to remember what the heck it was.

Here's a little quoting bookmarklet
for Metafilter threads that I thought folks might find useful. Highlight a text snippit you'd like to quote and click the bookmarklet. It'll format the snippit as a quote and paste it into the comment box for you. [more inside]

I'm wondering if (a) we might be able to get a baked-in quoting ability, or (b) someone could help me figure out why Plutor's quote script isn't working for me. [more inside]

and everything, but shouldn't we be a bit concerned that the post itself is just the first two paragraphs (even the same links) of the main atlantic article
, without even attribution? Seems a bit off to my delicate sensibilities.

Slightly better CSS: Could the CSS for useful elements like blockquote be improved so that quoted text from previous posts does not have to be faked with ? A now-common style of changed font, larger left indent, and line down the left side might work.

Quote pony? Whereby a user can quote another post without having to copy/paste and add italics. Gut feeling that if this was easy and feasible it would already exist, but you never know...
