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.
"When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, the foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest." ~Proverbs 29:9

"Not to know of what things one should demand demonstration, and of what one should not, argues want of education." ~Aristotle

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~Aristotle
