The latest and greatest earth-shattering new feature to hit the website... a dedicated "Classic Quotes" page. It's on the message board. All so that we can, as Dan would say, "Immortalise those classic lines!"
Hmmmmmmmm. What gives me the impression I'm gonna get stung by this one.
It's not rigorously tested yet, so any problems, tell me. Also note that although it looks anonymous, anyone can find out who has posted things! ;-)

Thanks to a quality display of pedantry from Mr Talbott, the highly acclaimed "Quotes page" is no more.
Apparently, according to his hallowed copy of Chambers, "Quote" is only used as a noun colloquially, which, I am informed, implies in speech only. To quote, "loqui = 'to speak' in Latin".
It has the therefore been renamed the "Quotations" page which, it is suggested, better suits the social standing of the revered institutions of which we are part.

It seems to have been rather successful, though.
