Imagine you were out shopping and each time you picked up a little something
at a store you tied it to your back and had to drag it around with you. By
the end of the trip you would have quite a trail behind you. It would be
cumbersome to say the least.

I think that is what it is like when people reply to a message and include
the whole original message in their response. I think LMNET would be a third
shorter if people would just snip the relevant part of the original message
and include that in their reply. I like to think of librarians as efficiency
experts so let's apply some of that instinct for efficiency to our replying
