LOL, I was waiting for that!
Without the speech marks though, is the quick way of doing it, for me anyways

I just tick the box and click "quote"

Oy, JohnnyFrond - quick and easy tip to help the newbies avoid embarassment....use the 'post reply' button instead of posting a quick reply. After only a couple uses you'll get used to what tags go where and won't have the prob again
By the way, most of us thought it was a very interesting thread - only a couple of folks didn't and note that they were readily handled. Sometimes this place is like that - we have to deal with so much horsepuckey every day it occasionally gets hard to tell the difference between threads of quality and steaming piles of crap left by idiots. This is one of the (few, extremely rare) gems that we look for whilst sifting through said horse turds.
Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

Well, not poking round in doo doo, that's not fun.... Um, I'll get my coat

Well if you really want to get upset at every thing, that is your right, I guess.
Still don't rate it as a life extension plan though.

JRUMJ dont worry about it man, you asked for advice, you got advice, you have acheived what you needed.
If some people wanna slag you off/ have a go at you in the thread just ignore them, ive noticed they tend to not post in the thread again if they get no feedback/support from others. Rise above it! If you have a go back at them, it just makes you look bad!
As a wise man once said...dont feed the trolls!

I just highlight the bit I want, right click and copy it, then click the "quote" radio button at the top, and paste it.
There is the "official" mechanism but I don't normally want the "posted here by him" bit.
I have had my personal assistant check my itinerary and I have five minutes to spare towards the back end of next week. Perhaps you could contact her and book an appointment?

Hey JRUMJ never ask me for stupid comments, your wishes will be granted faster than by a genie out of Aladdin's lamp.
