Hey all,

I don't mean to complain unduly, but for the benefit of those of us who receive 
the digest
version (and others, I suspect), I would like to respectfully ask that when you 
reply to a
message, you cut out all but pertinent parts of the original post, ESPECIALLY 
after only
adding a one line reply.

Weeding out the new from the old while reading the digest has become nearly 
mainly because of the difference between how different email clients handle 
reply content,
and the sheer number of replys without trimming that appear.  After three or 
four replies
to replies to replies, you get 6 email headers and 6 midrange-l list 
disclaimers, 6 nested
levels of >>>>s or ::::s etc.  Add to that email clients configured to use 
MIME, passing
html intead of clear text, after a while you've got a real mess on your hands.

Just a humble suggestion...
