Post length refers to the message inside the post, not the number of posts in 
the thread.  Notice how I snipped out all of the text I was not responding to 
in this one?  They had no direct bearing on what I want to say and if anyone 
needs the reference, they have copies of the previous emails they can look at.

If someone were to reply to this to comment on something I am saying, they may 
choose to leave the part I've left quoted as well as my new part because they 
want to refer to both texts, or they may snip out your part that I quoted 
because they only want to respond to what I said.  If someone responds to that 
person, they make the same decision.

It gets confusing to see quoted message after quoted message when some of it 
can be trimmed without losing any pertinent information and all the extraneous 
information is just that - extraneous.  So it requires more effort to get to 
the new part when you've already gotten the gist of the old part.
