but I've seen where words are removed, put in a different order or even words added to the original quote. all so either that poster can make his point or make another poster look bad.

like I said I've not noticed it frequently but I have seen it before. on a multi page thread no one wants to hunt down the original post to see what was actually written, that's part of the point of quoting.

I see what your saying, sometimes you only maybe want a certain sentence from the quote but when you start removing parts of a quote or altering the words it can change the whole meaning of the quote and is putting words into the mouth of that poster.
