I'd suggest either the "[some text omitted]" variant shown in the FAQ, 
or perhaps merely "[snipped]" or (worse, I think) "[skipped]".  At least
remove the "Sorry," part since it is the primary cause of the confusion
in the first place, but perhaps more importantly, don't leave the
message in at all if you are snipping an entire section and 
surrounding the "Sorry, skipped" message with your own text: it makes
it look like you typed the words yourself, and that's the most confusing
part of all (to me). :-)
