    Manurere you can avoid posting everything someone has posted by simply highlighting the area you want to say, then click ‘quote’. Only that small part of the original post will come up so that you can then comment on it.

    eg …..

    it came out with her pictures, is that what was suppose to happen

     

    Hope that helps you.

    Cheers
