I believe the changes were done out of practicality, not as a way to
frag with the game-scene (right, Mr. Kenson?). Speaking as a webpage
designer who has over 300 of the little SR-type quotes, they're a
~*pain*~ ! They take extra formatting & the closing quote always wants
to end up on its own line. And then there's the problem of whether or
not to indent them in <blockquotes>. (I solved this by adding blank
space to the start of my transparent gifs). But I digress...

Even 'tho I prefer the look of the >>>>>[older ones]<<<<< ,
the (>)new
bullets are very quick & easy to format documents with -- you just add
a single character to the start of the paragraph & format around it,
without worrying about the hanging indents or length of the post.

Yea, we're (finally) switching over to the newer ones.
