I prefer mention to quote notification honestly. I would find it obnoxious to have 2343242 notifications of people quoting me for whatever reason, and I'd like to have more control over when I mention someone - what if I'm in a thread and someone says like:

I'm gonna have some beer tonight!
Then I would say:

Hey! [mention]Razor Leaf[/mention] is an alcoholic, he'd like this post!
But RL was never part of the conversation. Can't really do that with quote notification. They're separate things. Like squares and rectangles: mentions can be used in the way I outlined and to notify someone that you replied to them, but quote notifications can only be used to notify someone that you replied to them. Makes more sense to have one that can do both over one that can only do one.

Are all men stupid?

That's right.
