Its impossible to tell who you're quoting. 

If you use the "quote" button over a specific post, you'll capture the pertinent info.  If you copy-paste and use the quote feature, it'll be an anonymous quote. 

I'm not being nit-picky, just not sure if you know.

Usually, the anonymous quote is utilized for excerpts from online articles, song lyrics, and things of that nature.

Some group of greenies at my university just held a student vote to establish a "Green Fund" that will be paid for by raising everyone's tuition. One of their main arguments was how much money the school would save by installing energy-efficient lightbulbs and solar panels...well, if it was going to save so much money why did you need to force everyone to pay for it?

I argued with one of the people behind this vote about going with a voluntary approach and soliciting donations from concerned students instead of forcing the whole student body to pay for it and I got the usual nonsense about how this is such a great idea that "everyone SHOULD support it" and I asked "So by SHOULD support it you mean forced to support it, right?". Its not force! We're letting you vote!

I hate stupid people interfering with my life.  When the socialists tried to ban Coca-Cola products on my campus, I launched a campaign to counter them.  I don't even drink Coke (or other Coca-Cola products) more than a couple times a year, but I didn't want these idiots to get their way.  They were even allowed to use school funds to bring Ray Rogers on campus to spew nonsense.  I won :)

freeagent, I admire your efforts but I work full time in addition to classes and frankly as popular as this green thing is right now I feel like it would have been a total waste of my efforts. I'm not against solar panels or fancy new lightbulbs. I like some of that stuff. I was against the coercion involved and teaching people that forcing others to pay for your "good ideas" is great.
