There's something wrong with the text
Letters are altered
A matter of attitude.

What were the letters before and what are they now?

Scripts often have trouble handling quoted text correctly (the above quote should have been rolled back as well).

Even if the quick quote script were as unaffected by this as the regular quote[1] I'd probably have copy pasted this particular instance. :P
Which someday it might be if I ever fix it up near-perfectly rather than just "pretty good".

They could get more hardcore, forcing a quote to be an actual embedding. Most smoothly with version control.

If I had:
Scripts often have trouble handling quoted text correctly (the above quote should have been rolled back as well).
and you wanted a trimmed version:
trouble handling quoted text

That would be a substring of the full quote. If I later edited the quoted text you'd still have "trouble handling quoted text", but as a quote from an earlier version of the quote.

No idea what you are talking about. For me posts still look like posts and quotes like quotes in every browser I am using. I will be sure to tell when there is noticeable change.

I auto-piratized the messages on Type Like a Pirate Day. This was one of the more successful results:

Cool. Reminds me of China around Macao. You are driving in a high-density urban environment, with 30+ floor buildings on both sides, only that according to Google Maps you're in the middle of the ocean.

(However, it's missing one of the array of randomly appearing explications.)

Oh. Funny idea, in case it works. Good that it was so limited that it didn't affect me.
