Thanks, but I am aware of that :) My only concern is
that if folks are going to cut and paste or only include
part of an email, it would be considerate/less confusing
if they made sure they kept the "So and so wrote" part
with the section that so and so actually wrote. It's not
that difficult and prevents so and so from being flamed
for something that someone else said.
Simple netiquette and experience w/email, that's all.
