Right click and choose "paste as plain text" :read:

This removes all the links, tracking codes, advertisements, bad formatting and other garbage that gets pasted - otherwise, with this new software, your post may end up mod queued automatically if any of the links/tracking code/crap in the post are blocked. So rather than right click and paste, right click and choose the one below it - "paste as plain text" - thanks :th:

 

On a mobile device, after you paste - and before you begin typing in the post box - click the ‘remove formatting’ link at the bottom of the post box. Thanks :howdy:

Thanks Tim,

I appreciate it.  It will save me some time.  I usually edit out all the other crap.  This will save time and space.

where is that? I just tried to do it and im lost (Again).

Right click on something and copy it - then right click in the box you type in and choose "paste in plain text" - here's some screenshots for this complicated multi-step process ;)

 

First, we highlight the text, right click and choose: copy

Then, where we want to paste that text, we right click and choose: paste as plain text :)

Ok...slightly different on a phone - after you paste the link/code laden stuff, under the post it says "you have pasted content with formatting"  - and there's a link under that line that says "remove formatting" - click that :th:

Gotcha.

And good job translating my previous post.

My autocorrect works too good sometimes.
