    I'm using Safari on my iPad to read and reply to posts and note some odd behavior. There is a+ Quote and a Reply button but Reply also quotes the original. How to reply without a quote?

    Further when I try to delete part of a long quote to show just the relevant part I can not select, that option disappears. It seems I have to delete one character at a time.

    iOS8 on an iPad air.

    To reply without quote, simply write your post without using one of the two options. The answer will look like mine.

    To delete one word, double tap the word, and it will appear like this:

    From there, you can drag the highlighted area as far as you want to delete more of the text than just one word or letter. Then tap the delete button on your keyboard.

    Btw:
    The difference between Quote and Reply is that Reply only quotes one post - the one where you select it -, while you can choose to quote more than one post when you select Quote (that's why there's the +).
