Is it very difficult to trim quoted text that you are not replying to?

It is generally more difficult than on the computer because accurately highlighting a single line of text is more annoying, and going through and clicking through an email to delete and type inline replies is a lot more annoying and finicky as well.

I also think a large part of it is just that a lot of popular email clients (particularly gmail) completely hide the post you’re responding to in the reply with a little show/hide widget.
