Well, the IT professional in me says, "Your internet provide likely uses address profiling via a series of NAT and caching proxy servers, which, given my having hidden the avatar via a too global apache rewrite utilizing a cacheable 301 redirect, will need to time the current error out of cache before you you will see stumpy."

The human in me asks "and this is a bad thing?"

The question that should be pondered is "what do you know?"

Ah, indeed. And therein lies the rub, my good Stump. Incidentally, how many nested quotes can we achieve?

You may embed only 3 quotes within each other.

So advised. Thanks Amber.

Or just try it on your post with a bunch of nested quotes and you'll see that my Tone has been set by the forum's built-in wrist slapping. ;) I was going to continue on with the gag but I was firmly chastised for trying to go all House of Leaves here.

I believe the level of nesting is configurable ...

Imagine the 3 word stories as nested quotes! Ooooo the horrors we could create!

Vic-k wrestling with his alter ego in a 'best of three nests' contest? Ye Gods! We wouldn't stand a chance. Or, as Vic-k would succinctly put it – Pffrrrrttt!

By the way, The Sirens of Titan is on sale at Amazon for $2 in the U.S. store at least. :)

In an attempt to bring this thread a tad further into the current century, I submit "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" for you're reading enjoyment. Between the covers you will also meet Kilgore Trout, who, as of 1974 has written 117 novels and 2,000 short stories, none of which have seen the popular light of day, so to speak.

Kilgore Trout's is famous for the sci-fi novel Venus on the Half-Shell and should be read concurrently or immediately after God Bless You, Mr Rosewater.

That's it folks, see y'all in 2021.
