Just now, I received a notification telling me that kitsuneshoujo just quoted me. So I went to the link that the notification gave me, and it led me to here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-810119/the-sunday-without-god-discussions?fpid=43942527
And it seems that someone else (Rito2Ru) was actually quoted! Anyway, I checked the coding of kitsune's post, and the only "postid" I see there is 43942261, which does lead to the postid of one of Rito2Ru's post: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-810119/the-sunday-without-god-discussions?fpid=43942261

So why I got a notification about it is beyond me. So I guess it might be a site glitch or something?

The notification system is completely unrelated to the content of the message. They could have quoted you, deleted all the text in the box and pasted the other quote, or they could have quoted you and used the quote from your post. Either way, when they submitted their post, they submitted this with it

<input type="hidden" name="quoted_fp_id_list[]" value="43942343">

which means you get the notification. So to answer your question, it was not a glitch.

Oh ok, thx a lot for the explanation!

Edit: Out of curiosity, I just tested out what u had said, and it worked!

But now that I got a better understanding of this, I need to make sure now not to quote just anyone then, lol. Because on rare occassions, I think I have quoted someone that I didn't really need to, and deleted everything from the text box and then proceeded to pasting other people's (sometimes multiple) quote's inside.
