I meant this post to go underneith David Nardi's post in response to him is that what "quick reply" is supposed to be?
A Quick Reply gets appended next at the current bottom of the thread. If you wish to reply directly to a post higher up in the thread, select Reply with Quote from that post. Then you can edit the original poster's quote down to only the part you are replying to directly. Just don't modify the essential content or context of their original post. That would be considered bad form.
