Of course, the 'traditional' netiquette is to *edit* what you're 
replying to (rather than just including tens or hundreds of lines of an 
ever-expanding thread) so that there is just enough context to make your 
reply comprehensible.

But habit formed when bandwidth was precious.  Very few people bother 
these days -- another complaint to lay at the door of corporate practice 
with MS Outlook, alongside HTML e-mail.  :-(
