When you hit the "Reply and Quote" under the box you make your reply, you will see the following text
Please edit quoted text responsibly. Making modifications which misrepresent the original post will result in a forum ban.
The only way to complain about this is to use the "Alert Moderator" button and explain your misgivings about the amended post.
If your complaint is accepted then the post should be removed and the person banned from posting for a period of time.
However, you have to watch who has amended your quote, as many people are immune from getting their comments removed. This is covered under the Please edit quoted text responsibly
which in theory gives certain people carte blache to do what they want.
The reply and quote function should be exactly that and the original text should not be able to be amended, even though in some cases it is funny.
Try reporting the posts that have been amended and let us know if they are removed or not.
