Opera Mail reply without quoting

An annoyance I have with Opera’s Mail client is that if you highlight some text an in email you are reading, and then reply to the email, only the highlighted text will be quoted.  This is obviously a feature that is by-design, but I often highlight text as a read with no intention to quote it.

To get around this feature I’ve created new buttons that deselect highlighted text before creating the reply message.

Reply | Reply all

You can drag and drop these to your Opera toolbar, or the raw commands are:

Deselect all,,,"Reply",Reply & Reply
Deselect all,,,"Reply all",Reply All & Reply all

Queensland partition to introduce R18 game classification

If you’re a Queensland resident who feels it’s about time that adults have the right to play adult-orientated games, now is your chance to have your say.

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Classification of Computer Games and Images Act 1995 is currently out of step with the wishes of the electorate.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that it be amended to permit computer games to receive the R18+ classification when they have been refused classification under the Commonwealth Act.

Sign the partition at 'Classification of computer games in Queensland'.
