Click the ("+) box next to the "Reply with Quote" box for each post you want to quote.
Then click "Reply with Quote" on the last post. It should open a new box with quotes of all of the posts you selected.
Move your cursor to the quoted posts and edit them to quote only part of the post.

And if you want to quote multiple portions of the same post, copy & paste the bracketed quote & unquote you find after hitting reply with quote and put then at the beginning and end of each section you want to quote. Don't know how clear that is.

Cool. I didn't know that either. Just had to give that a little test run here.

And perhaps obviously, once you do your quoting, you can then place your cursor after each section and comment on them separately.
