Interesting thread from Mastodon’s Renaud Chaput, noticed via The Fediverse Report, about how Mastodon is approaching quote posts:

It is a complex task and we have been working on defining the feature and the protocol-level details for some time. We are moving forward, and there are fewer hard questions to answers, but progress is there.

I can see a place for more control like this. But also, I like simple Markdown and HTML block quotes, because it scales from microblog posts to excerpts of long posts, for the whole web.
