I think it is more-or-less a fact of life now that some people will
never really understand or employ USENET-style quoting. The
mail/messaging/newsgroup clients these days tend not to encourage it.
It would be one thing if there was a single, dominant "rich" e-mail
standard that *everyone* migrates to at once, but clearly there's not.
So we are stuck doing our own visual parsing when the post matters to
us, or ignoring the post when the topic is not important enough (to
us) to be worth it.
