Personally, I consider the practice of doctoring up someone's comments and then making the comment above to be an obnoxious and patronizing practice.

If you want to disagree with someone, help yourself. But don't put words in someone's mouth that they didn't use, and then claim that you "helped" them.

You know something SP, it wasn't until I was in the shower this morning that I realized why you're probably touchier on the subject than most people. Several years ago someone responded to a post of yours, and did the usual copy and paste. But there was a sentence in there that no one could find, and when someone asked about it she admitted that she liked to add extra comments and pretend someone had said them.

While several people were explaining to her, loudly and angrily, that this was not acceptable behavior, several other people started combing her previous posts for other examples so they could be FA'd.

As I said, it wasn't until this morning that I remembered that event, and realized why it probably annoyed you so much to have someone else alter what another poster said.
