  Agreed, but more than just this, problems arise when multiple posts are
quoted and there is a mix of top and bottom posters. You end up with
blocks like:

>>Which one is?

>>>>>>How do I fix it?
>>>> Unplug it, clean the connectors and try again.
>>>That's an IBM documented method of starting a dying disk.
>The hammer.

It's not easy to quote, snip or read.
