Make the "Reply" button automatically insert a @ mention

I see many giffgaffers in the forum use the "Reply" button with the belief that it will actually reply directly to the person they wish to respond to.
It doesn't work that way.
I have been tagging posts that I have noticed where people have assumed that the reply button actually replies to the person they're addressing.
Infuriatingly, because the "Reply" button is positioned beneath every post, it leads people to believe it actually works as a direct reply to the person they are responding to.
I propose that the "Reply" button, which appears beneath every post, should be relabled as "Quote" and it should automatically include the quote of the post the button is attached to.
