I apologize if I'm late to the party on this, but I don't recall having seen anyone else comment on it.

Original posts are timestamped on a 12-hour clock (e.g. 4:00 p.m. is written as 4:00 p.m.), but when the "quote" function is used, the quoted excerpt is timestamped on a 24-hour clock (e.g. "On 2011-06-04 16:30, LobowolfXXX wrote: Quote: ...")

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

From a design point of view this is a subroutine and to check for 12/24 switch would involve more code. It's easier to just leave it at a time all people all over the world understand that 24 hour clock, with minimal code or redirection through several sub routines.

No doubt it was expedient. But it is an interesting observation, Lobo.

Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats
