Michael,

If one quotes a post using the "Quote" button at the bottom, then the person being quoted gets a notification that he/she has been quoted.

But what if one uses the selection quote feature to quote just an excerpt from a post - does the person being quoted get a notification?

Ellen,

People being quoted only get notified about it if they decide to be. 

Go to your name on the upper right and click on it --> Click on Account Settings --> Over to the right will be Other Settings --> Underneath click on Notification Settings --> Scroll down to Notification List --> Keep scrolling until Someone quotes a comment or post I made. Then choose whether and/or how you want to be notified.

That's why some people get notified and others don't.

Chuckle.  You didn't address what I was asking about.

Ellen,

I used the quote selection method above, not the quote button at the bottom.

You should have your answer now.

Jon did.

Thanks, Jon.  I got a notification.  Cheers for the experimental method.

Ellen
