I dunno if it's "correct", but I find just giving them a hearty " fuck you" covers most everthing, most of the time.....

RE: Replying to a member's multiple statements
Just do it in a way that makes it easy to read and follow.

When I'm using my iPad long replies suck balls -- if you're trying to do the point by point thing. Too much copy/pasting.

When I'm on my laptop it's only slightly easier.

I usually quote the whole post, and under that I place my comments trying to make it flow like I'm having a convo. Making sure you understand are quoting their points correctly.

If your commenting to multiple posts there's a button in between the report and reply buttons for that.

Then hit new reply and all those posts are added and you can just add your reply to each one.

> Okay, I'll give that quote button a try and see what happens. Thanks, Mom. If that doesn't work and my next post looks all messed up, I'll give you a link to it and maybe you can tell me what I'm doing wrong. There ought to be some illustrated instructions here for a PC tyro (and old man) like myself. Blush

If you want to insert replies just type in a closing /quote tag, your reply, then an opening quote tag to pick up quoting the one you are replying to.

For long replies it's often easier to copy the while thing out to notepad or other text editor than it is to edit in the little window on the site. When you are done editing use the 'preview post' option to check that your quote and /quote tags line up.

Hit "reply" and edit their post there. Just block the bits that you wanna quote and hit the quote button. That automatically adds the [ quote ] and [ /quote ] tags to your selected text. Then just work your way through the rest of their post.

Block and delete any of their comments that you don't want.
