    I've seen this pop up a handful of times, and I originally thought it was just a glitch and/or people doing "creative editing" (accidentally or on purpose) of the tags in the markup.

    But I suspect this is a pretty clear example of the forum software acting up.

    Observe post #210 here:
    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/1831531/

    Then scroll up to post #209:
    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/1831466/

    The #210 hockeythug post is clearly quoting the #209 adiggs post, yet the attribution and the link point to msnow's #162 post:
    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/goto/post?id=1827361#post-1827361


    This is likely to cause some confusion and hurt feelings if it arrives in "just the wrong way" in a heated discussion (especially in threads about climate).

    Please take a look to see if you can find something off in the software.

    Thanks

    If it helps you to troubleshoot why this happens I did have a draft of a post that was saved from yesterday that I believe was addressed to msnow that I never sent. I did clear it before I typed my new one message though. Strange.

    Could it be user error? Like a mistake when editing?

    I see something similar when people quote posts with quotes and mis-edit the post by not having the proper close quote codes in place.

    I saw others like @bkp_duke complaining about it starting last weekend before I got misquoted today. Very weird.

    Could you maybe have cleared out most of the message but not the [QUOTE tag? Perhaps that was scrolled off the screen so you couldn't see it?

    Here's another example. I suspect the "QUOTE" tag got misplaced:

    If you follow the arrow to my actual post, I was quoting someone else:

    Ok, let my try this again:
