Or, instead of hitting the quote button all the time, you could do what I do.
Just copy and paste what you want to quote, highlight it, then click the button near the top that says "Quote".
But it will end up saying this:
[quote]whatever you quoted[/quote]
To avoid that you can just type ="user" before the "]".
Although, I don't see why you'd think you have to manually type it out.
