"Technical guidelines

Proper quoting:
Proper quoting is very important on mailing lists, to ensure that it
is easy to follow the conversation. There are four fundamental rules:
When replying to an email, ensure that the email which you are
replying to is indented with a symbol such as > or | (this is usually
done from the preferences of your email client - most should do this
by default).
When quoting, attribute the quoted text to the person who wrote it
(again, most email clients will do this by default). Be careful to
attribute the correct text to the correct person.
Write your email underneath the email which you are replying to.
Tailor your reply to fit the text which you are replying to. Do not
quote the whole of the previous email - remove any unnecessary text.
To avoid confusion, it's often a good idea to replace removed text
with a brief indication that something has been removed, like [snip]."
