How do you reply to a post without pasting post you're replying to?

    Every time I reply to a post the message I'm replying to automatically pastes into my reply, just as the HubPages message above the reply box says it's going to. The message tells you how to edit the content of the post you're pasting, but not how to get rid of it all together. Yet I see others replying without it.

    So how do you do that?

      You can use the black "Post a Reply" button as paradigmsearch says, but that replies to the thread in general.  If you want to reply to a specific post, you need to "import and edit the quote" and cut it down. 

      You can't get rid of the original post altogether but you can cut it down to the very minimum.

    The black button on the lower-right.
