Actually, by definition, if material is excess, it doesn't help. If
it is essential, of course, you are welcome to leave it in.
However, I strongly encourage you to be ruthless in your trimming
practices and in defining what is "essential" material. Excess
quoting hurts everyone. It increases the size of your message,
making it less readable and more difficult to respond to; it
increases digest size, making digests go out more frequently; and it
greatly increases server load, which may contribute to server
breakdown. Remember, with over 5,000 members on the list, each extra
1K you send translates into 5MB of sent material that our servers
must crank out. Please cut your quoting to the bare minimum.
Ordinarily, of course, you would have received this response off
list, but with such a public refusal, I felt it necessary to indicate
on the list that excessive quoting is not to be taken lightly.
Please see the third and fifth bullet items in the official list
policies if you don't believe me.
