    Default Will the new "quote" notification make for better conversation or more trolling?

    This new quote notification is interesting, it's nice to jump back into a conversation when someone has quoted you.

    The way I see this, it has the potential to take one of two directions overall - foster intelligent discourse and good conversation OR promote tit-for-tat thread arguments and trolling.

    What side of the scale do you think the new feature will tip towards?

    I think it will encourage all types of responses more, which unfortunately include the unproductive tit-for-tat ones. I guess people just have to learn how to ignore that quote feature if they are in a tit-for-tat and trying to disengage.

    It's like any other tool, where the user will define its use.

    Do people honestly dislike or perceive challenge as a negative thing and get emotional about it?

    I like it.

    As far as I'm concerned, they're redundant and distracting.

    I like it and was always using search to find where I was quoted anyway. I doubt it will add to trolling, trolling seems usually located to a thread. The more interesting question is how IQ, F or T, whether you are fat or skinny, S or N, beautiful or ugly as sin, will affect your quote count.

    Good premise for analytics, wolfy! I'm half smiling and half serious.
