Dear PF Forum,
If someone quotes your post from thread other than your quoted post.
Do you get an alert?
For example like this
Thanks SteamKing.
And..., the approximately sugar percentage in a living organism?
If approximately 95% elements composition of a living organism is Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and approximately 60% to 70% is water, then, how is the percentage of sugar/glucose? Just approximate number would be enough for me.

Thanks.

Thanks, Greg.
Even in a thread that we don't "watch"?

Ahh, that's why. I think jtbell (no tag here :smile:) got annoyed when I requote him. Although all my intentions was to give him some credit for his phrase that I thought is a good one.
This is his quote in this thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/learning-programming-languages.847121/
jtbell said
"OK, here's what I'd like to do, but none of the tools we've learned so far can accomplish it. So here's something new: pointers."
That was how jtbell taught dynamic memory allocation. That phrase impresses me. That I often requote it along with his name.
Now I know, even if I want to give credit to someone, that person will be annoyed to have alert thrown at him/her.
So, perhaps I just type his name as above, so that person won't get alert.
Okayyy, Greg. Thanks a lot.
