Why would anyone want to have to click an image to see it at full size?
No one would. It's at full size in the original post.
The original post could be on a previous page, and perhaps posted a long time ago. People who have read the topic will be taken to new posts, not the original, so clicking a thumbnail could well be easier than finding the original post.
Yeah and... I agree?
Yes, I didn't go back and read all of your posts, so I didn't remember which side you were on. I'm glad that you agree with the idea, but....

And I was saying - without dismissing the thumbnail in quote idea - that if one wants to see the full size of it, it's already full at the original post.
And I was saying that the full-size version in the original post might not be on the page that you're on, so people might well want to click the image to see the original size. You're the one who said that nobody would want to click to see the full size.
And as for what you said about the original post being on previous pages, well, there's this RFC: viewtopic.php?t=42855
While I love the "quote with link to original post" idea, that still doesn't solve the problem. Suppose user A quotes the OP, then user B quotes user A and then user C quotes user B and then user D quotes user C and you have a quote limit of three. The link in user D's post goes to user C's post (which has a reduced size image) and none of the other quotes links to the OP's post, either. So even that doesn't obviate the need for a click-for-full-size option.
Even assuming that we still have a link to the original post, clicking that link takes you to another page, which requires longer to load than just clicking the image.
And, of course, that RFC hasn't been implemented yet. This suggestion sounds like it could be done in minutes, unlike that RFC.
