Yes, I've been told that. A number of times. Once again, I apologize. I also explained why.

I think there's just some miscommunication about what constitutes "responding to the shape of the thread" here.  I think what you're seeing as "responding to the shape of the thread", we're seeing as "responding to the first post".  For example, here, the initial post asked for opinions about Penczak's work, and you responded with an opinion about Penczak's work, so that seems like a pretty clear response to the first post. 

There is a provision in the rules that you can skip quoting if you're responding to the shape of the thread and there's genuinely nothing at all you can quote to show how your comment follows the discussion at hand--but those situations are very rare and should not happen very often.  Most often, there is something that sparked the thoughts you're expressing, or that logically ties your comments into the discussion.  If there are multiple similar posts that touched off your line of thought and you don't want to quote all of them, you can just choose one.  The point here (or, at least, part of it) is to allow people to follow the conversation more easily, and when you don't show us how your comments fit into the discussion that can get difficult.

If you're still unclear about what's required, please feel free to PM me with questions and I'll try to help clear things up.  We need you to follow the rules, but obviously it's difficult to do that if you don't understand them.  So if you don't understand, let's fix that instead of just trying to plow ahead and hope for the best, yes?  Wink
