`system` deletes quotes from messages automatically

I quoted the guy so it would tell him I replied to him. The system deleted the quote (I guess because it was an entire message and is trying to reduce a kind of spam?).

Seems totally unnecessary to do this. Reply also doesn’t chain messages properly which means actually sending a message that somebody will see requires you to @ them.

Hello @davux3

This is a setting enabled by default on Discourse:
Removal of full quotes from direct replies - announcements - Discourse Meta

It removes the quote if your post begins with one, I’m not sure this is a good rule.
We disabled this setting for now.
