[Improve Content] Quoting

Sometimes I find it difficult to follow a discussion on Orchid,
because there is no context or attribution included in replies. I
have reason to believe that this is at least partly because of
editing by the moderator. I call attention to the Orchid FAQ:

When replying, should I quote the previous message?

Most certainly. You should always provide some context to your
replies so that people who may not have been following the thread
closely, or who have other things on their minds will easily be
able to determine what you’re talking about.

The FAQ goes on to discuss attributions and trimming (which is
important if the message gets to be more than a paragraph or so.)
