This makes your reply automatically show up as the last [b or i] used.
I suggest either making the text shorten code refrain from deleting any s or [/]s OR for any of these in a quoted post not to have any effect on the new post.
A better fix would be, if shortening text, to exclude both the  and the corresponding [/], or neither.
But that assumes that the post was correct in the first place. You can mess up a post by putting random, unpaired  or [/]s in (like this
[/i]) and that causes the ideal algorithm to fail. Then again, one could argue that such a post was broken to begin with, and if the quote is also broken, that's not the code's fault but the poster's.
