A usual habit with the "full reply" (containing the name of the poster + its previous message) is to bolden a part of the comment in order to stress it, while keeping all/some other parts to set a context or to indicate that one agree with what one left.
That reduces the number of quotes needed for a detailed reply of a long, argumented post.
Yes, quite often people replied to other posts and we knew who they were replying to without all the quotes. There needs to be a button that does this. Also, that envelope with the arrow pointing to it still says "Reply to" and not "Quote" to me.
One other small nitpick... shouldn't it be "Tom's Hardware Forums" and not "Forum Tom's Hardware"? I realize English may not be your first language... but this is one small grammatical error that should be corrected.
Yeah, I know... I'm picky... sue me. :P
You're right, but I guess it's not an error of translation as - I presume - the title thing simply hasn't been translated... memory lapse?
For instance the titles of all MD forums begin with "FORUM" (capitalized), thereafter supadmins are free to choose a name. Like: "FORUM Tom's Hardware (THG)". That's because the forum had been designed and sold for french speaking communities, until recently. Now it's been translated into english and german, I expect some changes in the customization handling
