And you might want to trim your messages to avoid quoting irrelevant
stuff. This is not directed personally at Mark, but at all readers.

Loads of us do it, and I wish we'd stop it. It's poor netiquette because
it forces people to skip past stuff that isn't relevant to the point
being made. It's also a global wste of bandwidth and storage space,
though that's less important than it used to be.
