I got the impression the three-sentence Quote rule was in the 'Rules' section....

I had already found the Copy and Paste two-sentence one, presumably introduced to stop idiots who like to copy large sections of text from wherever and then paste them pointlessly and obstructively in an active thread - I get that.

The three sentence one isn't a problem provided folk know how to use editing tools - it's not difficult - because the whole posting can initially be quoted, establishing the context of one's response, and then most of the quoted text can be deleted before posting the response. The way I showed earlier as an example.
