A bug and a comment
The bug (or what I consider a bug): It's possible to quote comments to blog posts and story chapters. It's not possible to quote forum posts. This sucks, especially in view of the following:
The comment: Activity here has grown a lot. As *some* people have demonstrated, the tree-based layout can get stressed to the limits in some of the busier threads. }:) Also, the tree-based layout makes it hard to find the new posts in a long thread (these days, I almost always have a search window open in the browser with a case sensitive search for "New", or I'd never finish hunting down the new contributions in some of the bigger threads).
I tried switching to the flat layout, since that would eliminate both problems (no squishing to the right margin, all new posts at the end), but as I half expected, that doesn't work, either. When everyone else is on the tree-based layout, no-one bothers with quoting the stuff they are replying to, because it is obvious what they are replying to just from the layout. Which means that when you switch to the flat layout, you get a wall of text with no context, which is no good whatsoever.
I'm not sure what, if anything to do about that (forcing everyone to the flat layout - yeah, that's gonna be popular - or making new posts stand out more would be two possibilities), but I'd like to throw this out for deliberation and discussion(or is that for cogitation and conversation, to ponder and parley?).
