Remove original message from a SharePoint discussion forum reply via jquery

Someone on the MSDN forum asked how to remove the original message when replying to a thread in a SharePoint discussion forum.
That smelled like a jquery job to me!!Here is the code, as always don’t forget to reference to the correct jQuery file:

<script type="text/javascript">
var d = $(' .ms-rtestate-write');
d.text("");
</script>

What the code does is: get the item with class ms-rtestate-write and clean out the text in it.
