Here is an example  https://permies.com/t/152056/Breaking-free-Google#1208558

I know some do not quote but for those of us who do I think the lack of acknowledgement for each quote can be confusing as it is with this post.  It appears that I am the one being quoted for both statements because for some reason the quote function has left off the name of the person who made the first quote.  

I like using the quote function in order to make it clear what I'm responding to.
I think this makes it confusing unless we take the time to go back and sort out who said what.

It seems like it hasn't always been this way and is just a recent thing? or maybe I'm just noticing it lately?

That's an error with the post in which you quote it originally; the posters name which you are quoting doesn't show in your original post so it cannot show in quotes of that original post. Most likely as you were editing the post you deleted part of the quote syntax by accident. I'm sure a mod can fix it so it credits the original writer again.

That's it...I'll go back and edit my original post to add a name.
