    Sometimes I will click on the Reply Button by accident or simply change my mind after doing so. The problem I have is that if I try to reply to another post, the quote from the previous time I clicked the reply button remains. Is there a way to "un-reply" to remove the quote from the post that I decided not to reply to?

    Yes, if I can find the right place to start backspacing from. Sometimes that's not to easy. Also, it's a pain in the neck if I'm using my IPad.

    Oh, I can do that. The issue is that even if I delete it, when I try to reply to another post on the thread, it's back again.

    I usually just highlight and cut the text from the reply box...
