    There's another thread about the CSS formatting of manually nested quotes, but is there a way right now to reply to a post containing a quote to create a post with nested quotes? Is there a secret reply button I haven't found yet?

    I think you have to do it manually with careful cutting and pasting, inserting one quote inside another.

    What you do is select reply to the main post that you want to quote, and then move the cursor in the message box to where you want to insert the nested quote. From there you go to the post where the quote you want to have nested is, and click reply there.

    Nested quotes are crazy in forums like Credit Boards. I'm torn on a nested quote feature.

    Ah. I sometimes have problems with locating or moving the cursor in the reply box, but I see that the exact location of the cursor can be significant.

    That is the problem. With my streak today, I finally broke out the mouse for my laptop again

    I like that it is hard to do nested quotes. Some people get carried away and it looks ugly.

    Especially with the current format of this board, nested quotes are a bad idea at this point.

    There are times where it is needed, but I agree that it is nice that nested quoting is not by default
