Hi you guys--
I've just discovered how to quote a post from a closed or locked thread. It's really simple and useful for those who may want to continue a discussion from a previous thread:
Here's how it goes:

2. On the post you want to quote, click on the post number link, the one before the "Report Post" link,
so that the post will open in a new window:
3. On the address bar, highlight the five or six numbers after the last slash and before the dash and post number:
Press CTRL+C or right click then select Copy.
4. On the Quick Reply or Post Reply function, type the following:
and it will appear like this:
