Sorry I assumed that on a technical list like this one folks would be
viewing emails as the internet gods intended, in a nice monospace font.

I don't see how leading carets would help in a proportional font; it just
doesn't work well for quoting emails I think. Maybe that's why email from
html clients seem to do a lot of top posting and ditch quoting (and I fear
reading) emails all together.

Apologies if the quoted stuff is messed up in this email. Darn phones are
not good at doing proper emailing.
