Yes, I agree. Maybe I should create a web page dedicated to the art of
'[snip]'. That is my main problem with top posters in general. They
never '[snip]' anything.  On a mailing list like this that adds text
at the bottom of every post, that accumulated crud can really build up
after a message has been replied to a dozen times or so. Top posters
are incapable of realizing that fact unfortunately. If they at least
used an MUA that dropped text after the 'sig delimiter' upon reply, it
would be a achievement.
