    Though I've retrained myself to do that, I still miss just "quote" (sniffle). Typing the extra "block" is the kind of stuff that matters to us nerds.

    I'm sure this will be fixed in time, at least if it's reported on the bug tracker.

      <blockquote> is HTML. <quote> isn't.
      I wouldn't consider non-inclusion of <quote> a bug, or adding it a fix. If anything, add support for <q>. That's standard HTML, and it's even shorter!

      Anyway, if you're too lazy to type <blockquote> you can also simply copy/paste it from "Allowed HTML" below.
