    Would an ADMIN be so kind as to send me a PM, please, so we can confirm (replicate) the following problem:

    In the past week or so I've noticed a problem when I reply to a PM, leaving some or all of the sender's message in the usual quote. After sending the reply, the quote is in my reply in "plain text" rather than quote form and I've tested it a few times with one Lounger.

    The reason I ask an Admin to PM me is in order to preserve the privacy of my PMs with another Lounger. Thanks...

    I'm confirming this issue in PMs.

    After PMing back and forth with Big Al, we couldn't reproduce the problem. But I'm wondering if it has to do with an issue I've seen reported here and related to the slow or incomplete response from the server when traffic is high -- perhaps the stylesheet that formats quotes fails to load occasionally?

    Sounds like a good story to me, Tony. And thanks for the PM exchange. If it happens again, I'll come back but for now it seems to have been a momentary problem. Who knows what evil lurks in these beasts we call computers...

    What is peculiar is that our recent test PM exchange still shows the issue.

    If it's nothing private, would you mind taking a screenshot and posting it here?

    Let me send you a PM, John and you quote me PM in your reply to see if it's still happening, huh?

    So munged quotes are not happening in a new PM exchange, but are continuing in the PM exchange where the problem started. Let's leave it be and watch for a recurrence.
