Venom, that word describes it perfectly.  I don't know why it hadn't clicked in my brain before I saw this word, it is the word F would use to describe M when she was in a rage about her kids, about him - her enabler and abuser -, and it is what he does himself, and has done for a long time, only in the past it was directed outside the family usually.

There is another way, which I have been using:
When you see a post you want to quote from, there is a blue box in the top right corner of the post saying "Actions" with a drop down menu and you select "Quote" - which as a matter of fact is the only option you have. This will insert the whole text of the post into your post including whom you are quoting. So the thing I do then is delete within the quoted post what I don't want, and make sure whatever I type is either before or after this bracket [quote author Fightsong link=topic=64168.msg568772#msg568772 date=1493134158] or after this bracket [/quote] or my text will end up in the purple box.

Hope this makes sense and we don't have you totally confused now  :bigwink:
