I've sent an e-mail about this already .... In IE 8, whether you choose "Quote" or "Quick-reply", the post still gets quoted automatically in your reply unless you intentionally delete it. This is pretty annoying, and probably the reason why so many posts now are quoting entire posts when the reply really doesn't address anything in the original post. People are clicking "Quick-reply" and then just not deleting the automatically quoted material. I don't have this problem in Opera, Firefox, or IE 6.
