How did using italics for quoting become house style? If it didn't just evolve, who pushed it and why?
I suppose this is just a personal preference thing, but using italics to quote linked material in front page posts makes them hard to read (not to mention looong bold and linked text, too). I just want to encourage the use of quotation marks instead. They are faster to type and easier on my eyes.
Just wanted to apologize publically for not closing the italics in my recent posting + thus, apparently, italicizing the whole page (I assume Matt will step in swiftly + correct this.)
