I use a far simpler method.

I copy the text that I either want to quote or reference, and paste it into my message between quote marks.

For example:

"My suggestion was to, basically, add a quote button..."

My response:

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not going to happen. We had a quote button once, and it was sorely abused. People would quote entire messages, some quite huge, just to add a few words of comment.

It was hideously annoying.

By removing the quote button, we stopped the quotards dead in their tracks.
