Hi Everybody,

I'm not the list admin, but please be considerate and trim some quotes
before you reply. Most email client support the ability to select a
piece of text, then click the Reply button, instantly trimming your
quotes.  Also, just about all email clients support a hierarchy of
conversations making it easy for the person reading a message to refer
to earlier posts if the want the full context. YOU DON'T NEED TO QUOTE

As as example of how terrible this is, just take a look at the
"Interface syntax: Is possible don't use specialize in mode objfpc?"
message thread. Probably 85% of that thread has message of about 20+
lines of quoted text with a 2 or 3 line reply. I have to scroll 2+ pages
before I can see the actual reply text. Now imagine the pain you cause
people using screen readers!

Come on people, stop being so #@!#$% lazy!
