It's not much of a benefit to the writer, but mostly to his readers, 
particularly including the archive searcher/reader combing for a useful shred 
among the mass of search results and useless quoted quoted quoted footer 
quotes. It provides a better sense of why and about what the writer is 
writing, as well as reduces the noise level, and the next/previous time in 
the archives. It's polite, a right and unlazy thing to do.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
