That's a big reason for snipping irrelevant portions of the original
messages. Not only do you have context for what I'm responding to, but
you also don't have useless junk that I'm not responding to.

And I get to make funny <snip> messages. (These can sometimes spawn
their own threads entirely unrelated to the main thread)
