Gmail's handling of quoting is dumb.  It doesn't respect inline quoting
and encourages unnecessary quoting.  It tries to solve a problem already
solved by much smarter MUAs, pretending as if only slightly dumber MUAs
already exist.

I use Mutt and can toggle hiding of quoted text using toggle-quoted
(defaults to 'T' key).  Even better is using skip-quoted (defaults to
'S' key) to jump to the next block of unquoted text.
