The "Quick Reply:" box appears after the open post and before the "Threaded Mode" posts and at the end of the "Flat Mode" posts.
In both cases all readable post have a "Quick Reply" and "Quick Quote" buttons that interest people that are in a hurry to post. My experience is that even though I may start in the "Quick Reply:" box I always end up switching to the "Full Reply Screen" looking for smilies, creating links, bold text, or others.
It seems to me that the QRBox occupies a lot of space and makes the user scroll a bit extra.
I would —frankly— eliminate that box or have an option to close it.
