So, if a thread is started VIP any post that quotes another post (even the non-vip ones) in that thread becomes vip. That is stupid.

non vip post

When I quoted my non-vip post, the show to subscribers only block was unchecked but my response still defaulted to vip.
When I hit the edit button, it was checked. So, I unchecked it and saved. End result was still vip.
Earlier in the year, when Marrow was hired, we had a Nebraska fan come over to congratulate us in a vip thread, posting non-vip as he was not a paying member. But, when he quoted people who posted non-vip info his posts were made vip and he couldn't read his own posts,

As a side note, I was not one of those begging for the old style of multiple forums to be returned to. However, at the time of the Marrow thread listed above, there was a thread making such a request. It was repeatedly stated in that thread how both conversations could be carried on in the same thread. I respectfully disagreed and pointed out the fallacy of ther claim by linking the thread where the simultaneous conversations that were supposed to be possible were completely disrupted. I did not call people stupid, or idiots and I did not curse. My post was deleted. I thought I had made a posting error and reposted. Later, my post disappeared. I believe I also tried a third time with the same result. A mod or staff member was deleting my posts. My point here is that I expect some may ask that I remove such conversation from this thread about Blake Bone but when I respectfully made such points in a thread whose explicit purpose was for such comments, mine were deleted. I almost canceled y membership on the spot.
