copy & paste
hit the quote button on post one.
copy the codes form this and change usernames, copy the body from post two and paste where appropriate.

I usually quote & answer, then do a quick underline like this

Then I'll do the same for the next part of the replies, I just find it makes swapping topics easier to read.

If your quote is cut off, like this, then highlight the quoted text, & do a seperate paste only using the existing "copy" into the existing quote brackets, the whole text will magically appear then!

I do it by right clicking on the relevant post's "quote" tag & opening it in a new Tab prior to clicking on whichever post I wish to quote first
