This seems to be an apology for being lazy and not deleting unneccessary 
stuff from an email. Why quote at all? By not deleting the full quote at 
the bottom of an email bandwith (and harddisk space) is wasted; if in 
personal conversation the context is clear, why not hit answer, delete 
the quote and type the message?
