This is the 21st century. OOP and all that good stuff. A quote is a
subclass of the original post and so on. The subclass therefore inherits
the pointers of its respective superclass.

Coincidentally, one might consider posts to be polymorphic, as in
accumulating quotes they are adding data. (And, arguably, during the
first reply, generating a new "quote" datatype.) And if you consider the
'post' class to be polymorphic, and therefore contain all of the quotes
within the inital invocation of the class, you maintain all pointer

And while we're discussing theoretical things, why do all of my friends
think I'm a geek? Oh... wait... :)
