Can we also include people who include the entire
thread with the reply?  This is rude to the reader who
has to sift through pages of text just to find the
most recent comment, and, in a way, rude to yahoo by
wasting their storage space, which they provide at no
charge
to the group?  This is my only comment to the thread. 
Even though differing opinions about form is
interesting, a discussion will probably have no
effect.
