Just use multiquote and cut and paste if it really helps your post.

Why is nested quoting a problem again?
Because too many people are terrible at trimming them, so you get posts that look like this. Waste of time and strain on my scroll wheel.
(a) it stretches out threads, which should be less of a concern now that the forums have a "fixed width" browsing option

(b) it adds a lot of unnecessary redundancy where a quotation just snowballs, especially where two posters are arguing back and forth

I tried clicking multi-quote but it doesn't do anything.

Help me!

Still doesn't work. I clicked multi-quote next to the relevant post then scrolled all the way down to the bottom of the thread and typed in my response in the 'post reply' box and clicked to post it, thinking this was what you meant. But it didn't quote anything at all.

Re: Nested Quotations

But I sort of hate nested spoilers. Because I have to click them all.
