Yes, this is correct.

It leaves the stacked reply intact. It doesn't rewrap and mangle it as
way too many other clients out there do.

Even better, it offers you the ability to reflow the stacked replies in
a flash. Just get the cursor anywhere in the stacked reply paragraph and
hit Alt+L. (NB// Do not use the mouse to position the cursor in the
paragraph, but if you insist, hit one of the arrow keys and then do the
Alt+L operation.

No. Fortunately, it's more handy than not for me. When I'm using Gravity
and there's no auto insertion of quote prefixes, I feel disabled. :-)
but I do agree that this should be made optional.

To help minimize this, go in the editor preferences and adjust the
'quote name limit' option. The default is 20. What this means is that
TB! will assume that any '>' character that occurs within 20 characters
of a new line is a quote prefix (the exceptions being if the '>' is
preceded by '<' or if the first character of the line is a <space>). If
you reduce this setting, what happened to you would be less likely to
happen where the auto-quote prefixing is inadvertently triggered while
composing messages.
