Phlox once fed Porthos leeches.

Daneel, I meant putting your post in quotes, since it was someone speaking. They still sound like someone speaking, but are not in quotes. So, I don't get you.

I don't think anyone does.

But I get what you're saying now. I use quotation marks just at the beginning and end of whatever a character is saying. So if my post contains the middle of a character's speech, I won't use quotations. Hope that makes sense.

Again, sorry for being nit-picky. Pals?

So, here's the supposed antidote.

Of course. (But if you're going to start with a capital after the quote mark, you will need a period -- not a comma -- beforehand. ) I think what is technically called for are elipses setting off the text within quotes at each post. The fragments are thoroughly interrupted. But since there are so many quotes, personally I'd rather make do with context and leave out quotation marks.
