TIP: How do easily delete quotes from a post.

While crafting a response, from time to time I've added a quote and wanted to remove it. I don't know about anyone else, but I struggled figuring out how to delete them.  The only answer I had was to clear the message field and start over.

But, there is an easy way.  All you have to do is click on the [+] button that appears at the top-left of the quote when you over over it.  Then, hit the delete key and it will go away.

Sorry, I'm not sure if there's a different or easy way I've obviously missed, but I figured this out a couple days ago and it's made using the forum a lot easier for me.

Can't get rid of that unless I refresh before posting and tell it to dump the loaded content

In fact if I select the corner icon and hit delete it creates this

@Reed Rothchild -- I just tested this on Chrome mobile.  If you tap twice in the gray header portion above the quote (see the two red dots below), it 'selects' the quote.  You can then tap the backspace (I had to do it twice), and it removed the quote without any issues.  Give it a try and let me know if that works for you!
