TO REPLY TO A THREAD: If you read a thread and want to get into the discussion: Click on the 'Post Reply' button at the upper right of the page. Your post will appear at the bottom of that thread in the order it was submitted. (or you can use the REPLY button inside each post)
TO QUOTE ANOTHER POST: If you want to address your reply directly to one member's post in a thread: click on the "Quote" button inside their post. If you do this, their post will be copied and be included in your post answer - so USE THIS OPTION ONLY when you want to take exception to what that one person said and direct your answer to them. (If you are the first person to reply in a thread, there is no reason to quote the one above you.)
