    Quoting the first post in a thread

    Why? Think about it. (Yes, I have caught myself doing it too)

    Works for me.
    On a practical note, some threads move quickly enough that it's handy to quote that first post, just in case things explode while typing a reply.

    It allows you to show what post you are referring to. The main exception I see is when someone has a huge first post and it just makes it harder to scroll.

    Works for me as well to specify which post I'm replying to.

    Re: Quoting the first post in a thread

    Threads here never derail or take wild tangents, so I agree with OP in that it is utterly pointless to quote the first post.
