That is an invitation to mess things up even if its not a rules violation. Once in an editorial the editor changed the word impotent to important ! He thought it was bad grammar or that he knew what I meant or he just did not like me (I send many many letters to our hick newspaper that are unpopular with the old money etc in this town). Anyway, that one (malicious?) change perverted the entire letters point and it did not win any accolades from the mayors office. Similar (malicious?) things have happened in this forum. There's too much chance for abuse allowing someone to change a direct quote. So I would urge everyone to use quote tags when quoting and never change a direct quote.
