Am I missing the typical "quote" button that bookends text with the quote tags? Can't seem to find one anywhere and it's a pain to type them in.

The board software does have a "Reply with quote" option. But back in 2003 it was decided that its drawbacks outweighed its benefits. Since then it was tried again at least once, and once again it was decided to disable it.

There's even a relevant topic!!! - Reply Quote function button to be disabled.

Anyway, obviously you've figured out how to do it the hard way (which is the only way). There is no formal forum rule, but it has been customary to use the [quote] variation for quoting from outside sources and to use the [qs] "quote shaded" variation for quoting from forum messages. There is also the [qs=name or other text] variation, which attaches an attribute to the quote box (as I did at the top of this message).

In case you didn't already know, there are HTML and dBCode help links to the left of every new message or message edit form. You can also use the "peek" at the bottom of any message, to see how the formatting was done in that message.

Things "very old blood cells"
This has been covered quite a few times in (probably) many different topics.

Perhaps a good place for you to take the issue is What is the Latest On Dr Schweitzer Trex Soft Tissue Find?.
