Hi Guys,

I started this thread in the hope that it would benefit all concerned with a
matter of protocol. We have all shared our opinions. I would like to thank
all of you for your input.

The fact of the matter is that, no matter what is best, polite, courteous or
kind, some people will persist in doing things the way that is convenient
for them. I'm not saying that this is right, just understandable.

My personal choice is to block the messages of people who persist in
annoying me. It is unfortunate in that, in the unlikely event that they ever
share anything of value, I will not know about it. On the other hand,
neither will I aggravate my repetitive motion injuries deleting their
meaningless and irritating messages.

For the record, this is my final comment on this thread.

I would respectfully suggest that we should all move on now.

Thanks again.

Regards,
Jim

Ok, I don't usually get in2 these kinds of threads, but let me just
comment. I do think that placing text in the context of a reply might
be helpful. I'll give a prime example. Jamal said some stuff & then
Inthane wrote back "applause Jamal." Well, now, my curiosity's getting
the better of me so I gotta find out why exactly Inthane's applauding
Jamal cuz I suspect it's not just because he's a great guy or whatever
but rather because he's uttered something profound. So, I now have to
find Jamal's message in the thread, click on that, & read his words of
wisdom that drew Inthane's applause. Now, I suspect that Jamal does
not wish to reread his extraordinary profundities which evoked
Inthane's ovation. However, for those of us who slept since some of
these messages were written... Perhaps some1 sees my point? Not all of
us use outlook express where messages are quoted endlessly. Even if we
did, the key is which part of the endless thread is being replied to?
So I think that requoting *relevant* text is a real courtesy--but
notice the word relevant! Just my $.02, & probably worth precisely
what yall paid for it.

BTW, applause to both Inthane & Jamal. They're some of the most
knowledgeable, helpful, & *nicest* folks on this list, & that latter
counts for an awful lot, as there are some knowledgeable folks in this
world who don't necessarily possess the latter trait. Thanks,
Gentlemen! &, as for me, I'll crawl back in2 the woodwork now where I
belong.

OK, so how is this a problem though if it works fine on linux?
Why can't you quickly skip passed > signs?
And surely you have a smart email client that could hide quoting? (mine
can)
And surely its better since it gives you more info about what the sender
is talking about? and it is easier for the writer...

Like this email took a little longer to write

Cheers,
