By that I mean small portions of the actual quote and how do you fake quotes? I'm just curious and it'll come handy if, say I had to quote 5 words of a 2000 word post.

When you click the Reply button you get the entire post by the other user along with a colon in front of each sentence. You can cut away all the bits of the text you don't want to reply to.

To fake a quote, just put a colon at the start of a line, followed by a space and then type whatever you want the quote to say.

It'll turn out like this
