Avoiding Too Many Spaces When Quoting A Post

When you reply to a post, you don't need to doublespace after the quoted text since it will automatically doublespace it for you. When you doublespace, you actually get a triple space.

So instead of this:

------------------

[qu0te]Here is the quoted post[/qu0te]

Here's my reply!

-------------------

You can do this:

------------------

[qu0te]Here is the quoted post[/qu0te]

Here's my reply!

-------------------

and you'll still get the doublespacing you so fervently desire.

[Please reread the above!

The reason it's "important" (everything being relative, of course) is that too many blank lines will limit the number of postings that will fit on a single page. Not a big deal, but may as well learn this now rather than later.
