I am afraid I do not know how to quote and reply to individual posts in this forum system so I am having to do so en masse.

In the thread view, every post has a [reply] link in the bottom right corner of the post.

In the individual view, there's the Comment on link underneath the post. (Update: Tux pointed out that this link could also be above the post, thanks!)
