Yes. And in this case, both would mean close enough to the same thing.

"Are" seems more natural to me, but that doesn't mean that "is" is wrong.

I think it's fun this way. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to quote outsiders.
this guy I met once wrote:I can't write! Furthermore, I didn't write this! How can you accuse me of writing this? I didn't even say it. I don't even exist. Whoa! *disappears*

Misquoting is a problem in the real world, so I don't see why it shouldn't be in our forum world, too.
