    I don't know how this happens. It never happens to me. Must be an Apple thing.

    Never happened to me either. Maybe this forum had bone to pick with cxwrench and did that as F U?

    For a while, I just thought you super-agreed with my opinion about ProLink, the Friction Mutilator, and wanted to share it all the time with all of your fans on RBR.

    I began to think of myself as an Influencer, in the dumbly RBR social media context of that word.
    Those Influencers can make some dough.

    To post this reply/quote I had to delete the post from Dave G and your earlier post about Pro Link. My work computer is a PC on Windows 10 so it's not just an Apple thing.

    I don't think so. There are definitely times that I haven't used it and multiple past quotes have shown up in a post. I rarely use multi-quote.

    I know that any time I haven't untoggled a multi-quote the toggled quote shoes up in my next reply and needs to be untoggled not to show up again.

    But then again, maybe you know this and you're really an agent for "ProLink, the one and only Best Chain Lube". Might even be in cahoots with Spike in this endeavor. But this is just speculation on my part.

    I still don't quite understand. Can't you just highlight and cut out the part you don't want to be in the reply?

    And remember the CX and I are the same person with different accounts.

    Sounds like you have a sticky multi-quote toggle; some Pro-Link dripped on your keyboard will stop that from happening.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    This thread made me decide to try Dumonde after 20 years of home-brew and pro link.

    Try clearing "Cache" so the multi quote gets cleared up. This is a good thing to do on your computer every then and again.

    Tried it then quoted your post...and it still includes the other 2 from Dave G & SPIKE. I guess I'll just have to remember to check for other quotes and then delete them manually.

    You may need a deep cleaning of your computer app. Kind of like heavily gunked up bicycle drivetrain, you gotta take it a part and scrub it thoroughly with brush and degreaser / solvent.

    I think maybe it's a sign that we all should be using what chains crave.

    All due respect to Dave G, Dave G is 110% wrong about chain lube.

    Time for a tune up. This guy called me yesterday to ask how much a tune up would cost. When I gave him the price, he freaked out. "My car mechanic charges less than that. My plumber..." Like somehow my trade is worth less than theirs. Believe me, his car mechanic or plumber would have charged extra for this sh#t.

    Hit it with a few squirts of WD40. It'll be like new in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

    Yes it is. While clearly the spikes aren't long enough to cause a fatal wound. The toxic coating will cause Botulism in even the slightest scratch.

    ^ There are spas with a pool of little fishes that eat / clean dead skin off of your feet when you dip in. I wonder if there is a version of such creatures for gunked up machine parts... Emoticon-Think.gif
