    I work some nights and generally my sleeping is all over the place - not an insomniac but my sleeping pattern gets thrown out easily.

    You can click the "+ Multi" button then when you are ready to post select the ones you want from the "Insert Quotes..." button that comes up bottom right. I usually just highlight and click quote on the first one then cut that to the clipboard, do the same on the next one but instead of copy/cutting it just paste in the other quote and post then edit the post if I want to do more than 2 quote LOL bit long winded but just seems to work for me.

    You click multi on every message you want to quote and then click insert quotes.

    You click multi quote on each one then 'insert Quotes' under the text box for entering a message.

    Like so...

    For some reason I do it the longer way - not sure why it just seems to flow better when I'm multi-tasking oddly.

    I usually forget the option exists and just reply to each message individually.

    Let them moan they're just trying to bump their post count lol.

    I find it makes it a little easier to follow the replies as the wrong use of multi quote can conflate something and you then get people replying to a misunderstanding.
