True there are mods for collapsible quotes, but whats being suggested is an extremely inefficient way to run a forum. Remember all the slowdowns and whatnot old PCF had? If you have 20 quotes (even collapsed) nested in a single post, all of that gets input into one database entry. The forum has to pull all of it up every time its referenced by anyone looking at that thread and is starts adding up quite a bit, as lots of people start pulling it up and even more keep quoting the 20 quote nest making it longer and longer. Get that kind of quoting going on in every thread on the forum and poof - database crashes.
We're trying to avoid the site problems that old PCF had. And while collapsing quotes and auto stripping the nests down to 5 are nice features, they are not really needed to post nor to get the point of a post across. So yeah, its something to add, it just won't be immediately.
