I don't think he's wanting you to justify your post (although who knows? - he is the Baron of Bluntness), I think he's just prompting you to add to the discussion.

Personally, I'd rather you gave an example to demonstrate your own take on the subject rather than just quoting someone else. It's fine to quote if you're going to add to what they've said, but otherwise it just makes a post kind of redundant.

But yeah - what Lance said; moderating should be left to the moderators.
