I find paraphrases confusing. I can't remember which post that was
that's being referred to. Whereas, if a judicious 2 or 3 lines are
quoted directly, that jogs my memory about the rest of the post.

I would add, please don't make your lines longer than 60 charcters
or so so they can be included w/out wrapping. :)
