I knew pretty much nothing about foruming when I joined.
But maybe I'm strange in that I didn't find posting below the final [/quote] to be a complicated concept.

If the number of opening quote tags is greater the number of closing quote tags, it will automatically add a [/quοte] at the end, even if you put your text at the bottom.

(note: I changed the "o" in "[/quοte]" to an omicron so that it doesn't mess with formatting)

If you surround text with code tags, it ignores the formatting.

But then, unless I'm mistaken, the word cannot be rendered in-line with your sentence.
