Not a fad and not someone's personal preference.....
The following is from the list policies .... Please note the second point.....
a.. Trim your replies. If you have more quotation than original text, think about cutting down on
the quoted stuff. The list members can look at the message to which you responded, or check the
archive. Prune that quoted text with ruthless abandon. Everyone else will thank you for it,
especially the list admin(s). Don't forget, thankful list admins are less hasty with the unsubscribe
a.. The list admin(s) will scowl heavily in the direction of any
Jeopardy-style quotations-- ** that is, putting your answer before the quoted question to which
you're responding ** -- but won't actually unsubscribe you for doing it. Unless you keep doing it
without trimming down your quoted text (see above). (emphasis added)
It might be worthwhile for list members to review them..... After all, when we joined the list, we
*all* agreed to abide by them......
Best to all
That's what I meant. Someone's personal preference without any hint of a reason.
Is there a good reason for your having sent your message to me and to the list?
