Neither can some e-mail clients. It's up to posters to quote (that is,
strip quotes) properly.
Gmane also allows you to use NNTP, though, perhaps you can find an NNTP
client which has the desired quoting UI :)

Yes, gmane seems to have some strange "duplicate suppression" algorithm
which doesn't go well with cross-posting.
