FWIW, I believe that if you exceed including 30 lines of the original post
in yr reply [when answering/referencing a prior post], you risk having yr
msg bounced for being too long! [at least that's what happened to me,,, got
a msg from the listserv disallowing a post for being 30+ lines long]
This is reason enough to judiciously snip each reply, i.e. edit any msg text
you include, else you unthinkingly (try to) post too long a response!
