Thanks, just can't seem to find the key here.
If you want to quote a previous post, go to that post and click the "quote" buttom in the bottom-right corner. The box for your response will appear, with the code for the quote already inserted. You can delete portions of the quote if the entire post is really long (other readers will appreciate it) by just highlighting and erasing the portions you don't want to quote; but leave the code at the end, or you won't get the proper effect.

Type your response to the quoted portion underneath the quote, and hit the "Submit Reply", button or the "Preview Reply" button if you want to see what it will look like before posting it.

This is how I quoted you in your post, above.
...The second most dangerous thing to do is Turning Your Life Around. Going by local news reports, if you start Turning Your Life Around, you will inexplicably wind up face down in a convenience store parking lot at 0300 with a bag of somebody else's money in your hand, a chalk outline, and half a magazine's worth of the taxpayers' bullets in your ass. -- Tamara K.
