Please don't encourage PM to start the trend of fully quoting everything including the quoted quotes and the quotes those quotes quoted (ad nauseum) from previous posts per Usenet/mailing lists.

Did I say people should fully quote the entire article? I doubt that, because I hate that myself. But I do appreciate relevant quotes, with replies interleaved. This sometimes means that an article is quoted in full, specially if the article is short, but usually it doesn't.

You open a new msg, wade through 100 lines of quotes only to find a one liner of "Me too" or "I disagree" or worse, a funny quip. Gah!

Such posts are usually annoying anyway, even if they don't quote.
