      Thank you Threefirefour. I tried that, but the post I wanted to reply to was long, so I can edit the "quote" to a part I am sort of "replying to" or...? Trying to figure out the "good form" way to do so :)

      Yes. The quote is between the [/QUoTE]s. This means you can edit the quotes by taking out what you don't want.

      Also, you can address people without a quote by typing their name before an @. example: @Lisa Modrall.

      Alternatively, you can select the text that you would like to respond to, and when you do that you will see the word "Quote" pop up. Click on it.

      In the very bottom right of the original post there is the word "quote" That will copy and paste the original post to a new box, and you can start typing your response. OR, you can just select (highlight) certain text in the post, and the word "quote" will appear. select that, and you can start typing in the new box.
