MUH SEKRIT CLUB

Come on, I see this thrown around all the time: whenever someone wants to restrict the site and make it more exclusive, people yell "LOL MY SEKRIT CLUB AMIRITE GUYS!"
First, this is a straw man. Most people don't want 4chan to be a secret club, they just want 4chan to have standards.
But I'm not one of them. I want the sekrit club.
But second, and more importantly: tell me why adopting a secret club mentality and being very elitist would hurt 4chan? Being restrictive and secretive would only increase the site's quality.
You don't see amateur baseball leagues accepting people who don't know how to play baseball, so why should 4chan accept users who are ignorant of how the site and the internet works?
Greentext quoting behavior

Hi, any chance of looking at the behavior of quoting greentext on quick reply? If I select lines, then click on the post number to bring quick reply with quoting, this is what happens (Windows 7, plain vanilla 4chan):
>quote text line 1
>quote text line 2
>quote text line 3
Opera makes it look like:
>>quote text line 1>quote text line 2>quote text line 3
Firefox makes it as:
>> quote text line 1
>> quote text line 2
>> quote text line 3
It would be nice to have it just quote the original lines as is. Since most replies to posts like this are line by line, they're almost always in the form of greentext line -> answer -> next greentext line -> etc.
Thanks in advance!
Telling people to ignore a troll is bannable now?

So, I'm going to be banned from /v/ for warning people not to fall for a troll thread which was attempting to derail a video game thread.
Post in question
I'm currently temporary blocked from posting in /v/, but let's face it. Mods don't even scrutinize the posts that janitors report unless it's really off and they're just push button bans.
What I'd like to know is, how do you expect people to combat shitposting like that? I was telling people not to fall for the troll, and I get banned for it. Wasn't saying I was reporting it, didn't tell others to report it. Didn't engage the shitposter. Just said people should not fall for his troll.
I'd really like a one of the /q/ apologists to explain this to me why those who want to keep things from falling apart further in /v/ are getting punished along with shitposters.
