Problem quoting
 
I've had this problem I think forever. If I quote someone that has themselves quoted someone, the nested quote does not come through. I only quote the original text of the post.

I read up on multi quotes and people discussing having to reconstruct things so I had always assumed this was just the way this site operated. Is that still so?

Any tips for quickly quoting an entire post that has quotes of it's own?

I think this happens all the time.

The best solution (and not sure if the word quickly that you asked for applies) I can give to you is to multi-quote both and then edit the post whne writing it by copying and pasting to leave the quotes as the original. At least this is what I do when I need to quote another's post and the quotes on it.

That's the correct behavior for this version of the BBS software.
