Something I’ve noticed happen with regularity on my Discourse install is that newer users tend to click the reply button for each individual post they want to respond to, rather than highlight and quote multiple posts at once. (The highlight + quote feature is less obvious.) The result is two or more posts in a row by the same user.
I originally considered this to be unmannered (posting multiple times in a row is typically frowned upon), but I starting thinking about it more and maybe it’s not a bad thing? The user is at least trying to maintain direction in the conversation.
I’m interested in hearing people’s thoughts on:
Is this behavior acceptable? (posting multiple direct replies in a row)
Is there a better way this scenario could be handled?
