Ahem. Just a friendly reminder that over-use of the "quote" function
is a waste of bandwidth and tends to distract from your own cogent,
brilliant comments.

I only mention this because in last week I've noticed an abundance of
messages that really only amounted to one or two lines of new material
but included 40 lines of "quote". In fact, of all the traffic I get,
TECHWR-L seems to have the worst included-to-new ratio.

If your message editor allows it please consider exercising some of
what you don't need.
