    избыточное цитирование

    In forum rules there is usually a rule that forbid to quote more than necessary from the previous posts. This redundant quoting is called "избыточное цитирование".
    How to say it in English?
    Thanks.

    I don't know. In russian it's common expression. Will "excess quoting" be understood by an average native English speaker in that context?

    Try "over-quoting" it's more frequent term in google - (14.900), for "избыточное цитирование" - (11.900), for "excess quoting" - (1.780) and for "redundant quoting" - (340)

    I have never heard of a rule about excess quoting. Furthermore, I would not understand what you were meant exactly usless you made a full explanation.
    In other words I understand the terms "overquoting' and excess quoting" but not the context.

    The set term is overquoting. I knew it back in 1994 in Fidonet.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Well, it's recommended not to overquote because huge quotes from other posts (one third of a page or more) usually don't necessary and don't give any usefull information, but take a lot of space and irritate other users. It's recommended to quote only those extracts which are crucial for understanding of your post.

    That's common rule on most of the russian-speaking forums. Concider that a good forum manners.

    I can explain better in Russian if you wish.

    Excessive quoting, and not excess quoting

    30,800 hits on Google for "Excessive quoting."
    22,500 for "overquoting."
    14,900 for "over-quoting."
    1,740 for "Excess quoting."
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    Redundant quoting is my own invention. I'm surprised Google found it at all.

    Thanks. That's a valid argument.

    You are right now: "excessive" is better than "excess" (though "excess" means "избыточный" as well).

    PS. As you can see, a don't try to argue (unlike of you), when I'am evidently wrong...
