Quick reply in each post is confusing

I have noticed some threads in which people have responded to specific posters without referencing which post in the thread they were addressing, and that they had several posts in a row on the thread that were each replies to specific posts. I believe they must have clicked on “quick reply” inside the post, thinking their response would show up under the post they clicked on. But it doesn’t. All the quick reply links lead to the same place at the end of the thread.

My suggestion is to eliminate all the duplicate quick reply links within each post and just have one at the end of the thread. Having multiple links as it is set up now is misleading, and some posters are clearly not understanding.

I totally get that.

At the same time, making such a change is certain to anger all the people who know how Quick Reply works and rely on it for their responses.

I doubt anybody relies on the ones within each post. One at the end of the thread would be much clearer and much less repetitive.
