In my message, I did say that quoting is a good practice in Github as

    That's not about Github. That's about discussion conventions. At least
    some repositories make use of message quoting in the messages to clarify
    what each message is replying to. This tends to happen in more complex
    issue discussions with multiple points being discussed.

I am not sure what you are trying to argue about. My statement was
referring to Github discussions that follow good practices.

Github or mailing list - bad messaging practices make things unreadable.
It is not about Github, it is about the community practices.
