Sorry for the misunderstanding, Cathy. By "quotations" I menat what others
have said, what has been already posted (sometimes many times) not
quotations from outside, which are welcome. I was not clear enough. How
about this:

Tad's rule # 3c+:
If quotations from other posts are longer than your text there is
a chance they are not needed to understand what you say or
that you do not respect your fellow list members.

Thank you for pointing it out. Maybe there is a better word than "quotations"?
