I notice that in Evo 2.30.2 if I have a URL in the clipboard (copied

to use Edit->Paste Quotation (Shift-Ctrl-V).

IIRC this is a change and I'm not sure I like it. It seems odd that the
more usual option of pasting the URL -- which is what I want to do maybe
99.999% of the time -- is harder to get to. No doubt someone thought
that pasting the attachment might be useful, but I can't actually think
of a single reason why I would ever want to do that. I often complain to
people who waste bandwidth sending a page when they could send a URL.
What on Earth is the point?


OK. So the problem is that everything is a URI?  If the URI points to a
local file, then yes the default should be to paste the file and not the
URI.  But if the URI happens to be a non-local file, such as a web
reference, then the default should surely be to paste the URI and not
the content.

For the bugzilla address above - would you want the content of the
bugzilla page posted or the URI?
