Anybody who can read is aware of the issue; anybody who can use
an editor is aware of the solution; anybody who is too lazy to
trim the crap out of the quoted stuff in their replies is asking
people not to read their messages.  And anybody who uses the
excuse that their MUA makes it hard needs to realize that this
is their problem, not something that the list subscribers should
have to fix.

Everybody has choices: get a better MUA or OS; use a free mail
service like yahoo or hotmail; convince their boss to get with
the modern world; find another job; perhaps start up their own
consultancy; retire and create the ideal environment at home; or
a million other options.

Cheers, Greg
