I don't know, but one guess is that some people assume there might be other replies while they're in the process of typing out theirs, so they quote to keep things clear. Like if three people had replied while I was typing this out, depending on how their replies went mine might not make sense w/o quoting. I've seen it happen on busy forums.

This is what I do, because I type slower than I think, and think pretty slow.

We ask you NOT use quotes if you are responding to the person directly preceding you! Quotes, within quotes, within quotes, within quotes, within quotes are very confusing and not necessary. That is like carrying on a conversation in a group and asking everyone in that group to repeat what they said before speaking yourself. Quoting a single person further back in the conversation may be necessary for clarity. Again, it is NOT necessary to quote the person posting immediately before you.

Thank you.

Not so much here as some other places.. It's very easy to hit the wrong key and post before you plan on it.

Then there is a post I sometimes make:
"Some quoted stuff"

You can say that again, and by the magic of Quote, you just did.
