On DDO when you want to add you tap "Reply & Quote", why isn't it "Quote & Reply", since that is the correct order.
I cannot write in English, because of the treacherous spelling. When I am reading, I only hear it and am unable to remember what the written word looks like."

I agree with G6. It's because it's not trying to communicate order. It's not attempting to say, "Reply, then quote." It's just saying do both.
