I myself was about one week from complaining about people not hitting the correct reply button. I really dont like it when people dont use the correct button, because you can never be sure who they are responding to.

For example, someone posts a thread, and I reply to them. They want to reply to me, and they hit the topic reply, and it it says that they are replying to themselves!

Thanks justin.

Slightly off topic, but I have to ask...

Which graphics tool do you use for the yellow highlight text in your screen shot above? photoshop? (if so, then how?).

I used PaintShopPro, but it will work the same way in PS. Just use the paintbrush tool, set the opacity to about 50% and choose a yellow color (or any other color.)

I just realized when you click on the link it isolates the post instead of just scrolling up to it. Very slick!

The ones that don't have anything above them mean that they are in response to the post right above it.

Just checking to see if you'r right about:

And if you quote, it doesn't say that but if you don't quote it does.

edit - no, I don't think that's correct.

Its funny, because I realized this a long time ago.

If you are responding directly to the LAST person who posted, there will be no "In response to..." thing above your post, just blnak space, as seen here.

If I am not responding to anyone in general, I tend to hit the reply button of the last poster just so that the text does not show up above my post. Take for example, this post.

If I respond to the topic in general, or anybody above the last 2 posts here, then it will show the "in response to..." or for this new feature, "NOTE: this is in response to the post by ..."

That is bad etiquette because nobody knows who you're talking too and if you view the threads in any other way than the default, it make no sense at all.

Just noticed it there when I popped back on here. It's a nice new addition and means you can see more clearly who it is in response to. Hopefully it will make some people use the correct buttons when posting.
