Anyway, in Gmail it's pretty easy to avoid. When you do a replay just page
down to after the person to whom your replying and type your message there.
It's a simple thing to do and it makes everything really easy to read for
everyone. Maybe those who find it most annoying should just put something in
their signature about it?

It's rude to do it, but if someone doesn't know about it they shouldn't be
made to feel like they are an idiot and shouldn't be posting to the list.
