Now you are manufacturing a false quote and that is against Delphi guidelines.  I'm going to ask Showtalk to remove it or I will report it to Delphi.

I just did the same thing you did to me... right back to you... after you did it to me first. See my post above for details.

You can’t change someone’s words or attribute a quote to them that they didn’t say.  There are other ways to make a point.

See what I replied to YWN666 about 2 posts above.

YWN666 said that I said something which YWN666 actually said.

THAT IS CHANGING SOMEONE'S WORDS "WHAT I DIDN'T SAY" WHILE ATTEMPTING TO SAY IT WAS A QUOTE FROM ME.

And then they attempt to blame it on Delphi because YWN666 said that is the way it works.

But that's not the way it works. They purposefully claimed I said something they actually said.

So actually it's YWN666 who should be warned because as you said... "You can’t change someone’s words or attribute a quote to them that they didn’t say" which is EXACTLY what YWN666 did. Post #98 from YWN666 to me quoting me as saying the following:

When in actually, if you go back to post #88... it was NOT ME who said that, but YWN666 as shown below:

My reply which you removed was a purposeful attempt to show exactly how things could be miss attributed, so if you're going to remove mine and get on me... then you need to do the same to YWN666... remove their post and warn them because they did it to me first!!!

In Post #98 YWN666 claims I said that when in fact Post #88 clearly shows that YWN666 is the one who said that! Therefore, YWN666 is purposefully misquoting me and attempting to blame in on Delphi's quoting feature. Well, it's not Delphi's quoting feature... it's the manipulative way YWN666 used Delphi's quoting feature and then turns around and claims it's Delphi's fault. This is a technique I ran across several years ago in another forum by trolls. They purposefully select only certain parts which one didn't say, but when you hit the Quote button on Delphi, Delphi will only quote the portion one highlights. So it's purposeful on YWN666's part to make it say that I said something which I didn't say and then attempt to say it's Delphi's fault when in fact it's YWN666's fault!!!

I couldn’t follow all that but if he attributed something to you that you did not say and you want that removed, I can do it.  However, it looks like you have explained it bette than an edit could.

It goes both ways.  If you don’t like being misquoted then please don’t do it either.

Then please remove post #98 because I didn't say that... he did in post #88!

Wrong - you manufactured a quote of words that I never said and attributed it to me.  Regardless of what was said, that action is inexcusable and dishonest.  That kind of things gets people banned permanently on my forum.

As I said, when you create a quote of multiple comments on Delphi, their software groups them all together.  If you don't like it, complain to Delphi.  You have no case.

I didn't misquote him.  When you are quoting a message that has multiple posts in it, Delphi's software groups them all together.  I will demonstrate in the next post but I'm sure you are aware of what I am talking about.

Well now apparently your quoting feature does not work at all.

YWN666 said... I can find any article that promotes lots of ridiculous falsehoods as you have done. You've yet to show an article that says what I claimed was a ridiculous falsehood, you just purport that in an attempt to trash me. YWN666 said... My point is that if you post the article or reference it, then you own it. My point is that I read the article several months ago I referenced and I own up to what I said... if I post the article, then the writer of the article owns it... not me. And as you say, you can find just about anything so find the article I read several months ago. YWN666 said... If you post it to make a point and then when you are called on it say "the article said it", then it shows that you have no integrity and can't stand behind the things you say. Integrity... you're calling me on my integrity? I now know you have absolutely no clue as to what you are even talking about! Just another attempt to trash me and what I say is all you can think about! YWN666 said... You're hiding behind the propaganda. ROFLMAO... what propaganda? Be clear, concise and tell me exactly which propaganda I'm hiding behind or back off! YWN666 said... I'm trying to keep you honest but I don't know if that is an impossible task.

OK this is an example of what happens when multiple comments are quoted.  It jumbles them all together.  Such was not the case with Walter's manufactured quote.

No it does NOT jumble them all up as you said, otherwise the following would also be just as jumbled up as you claim it to be.

So either Delphi works properly as I said or you're making something else up... your jumbled explanation is an edited version to make it seem like Delphi jumbles it up... but if Delphi jumble things up... then why is the following not as jumbled as you claim?

If you quote it properly... it will turn out properly. Otherwise, something else turns out which you want to blame on Delphi. Delphi's quoting works as it should... but somebody can purposefully misuse Delphi's quoting feature to make it look like somebody said they didn't but the point here is that it must be PURPOSEFULLY done. (i.e. It doesn't happen by mistake or error, but on purpose by the poster using the quoting feature.

YWN666 said...

You're missing the point.

No I am not, but you seem insistent on repeating such falsities.

YWN666 said...

I can find an article in a right wing rag stating that drinking soy milk can make you gay.

And what do drinking soy milk can make you gay from an article either from the right wing or left wing have anything to do with the conversation currently at hand? You seem dead set on blaspheming Trump and the right wing for some reason or another.

YWN666 said...

You've yet to show an article that says what I claimed was a ridiculous falsehood, you just purport that in an attempt to trash me.

Integrity... you're calling me on my integrity? I now know you have absolutely no clue as to what you are even talking about! Just another attempt to trash me and what I say is all you can think about!

ROFLMAO... what propaganda? Be clear, concise and tell me exactly which propaganda I'm hiding behind or back off!

YWN666 said...

I'm trying to keep you honest but I don't know if that is an impossible task.

Yet another attempt to trash me. I'm honest, I said what I read, I claimed up to it but no... you just won't take that. You continually call what I say conspiracy theory, you say I have no integrity. You say I'm believing propaganda. All very big trashy terms, but can you prove any of what you claim?

How about sticking to the topic and stop trashing the poster for a change?

There was an article out several months ago that said Republicans and some Democrats believe the 2020 elections were rigged. I vouch for it because I saw it with my own two eyes. If you want to see it... DIG IT UP FOR YOURSELF... and stop trashing me!!!
