    Thanks for the partisan analysis and shaming pointers.

    Shortening a quote to fit into the word count limit is fine.

    Intentionally editing a quote to make it seem like the user is saying something they did not, or in an otherwise dishonest manner, is not okay.

    There's nothing wrong with your quote or your post. You didn't change anything that was originally written by the poster you quoted.
