On Feb 7, Anthony Dauer (aka "Mr E", whatever that means?) posted in
response to a post from Pam Wilson. Ms. Wilson is relatively new to
the list, and she made a polite request that responses to other's
posts do not include the entire text of referenced messages. She gave
good reasons- which have also been stated by others.

Mr. E: Are you trying to harass Ms. Wilson? You did exactly what she
requested others not do- and you did it with her message. Your
message was approximately 129 words covering 9 lines. You then
attached her whole message adding another 216 words covering 34 lines
for a total of 345 words covering 43 lines. Your post was thus nearly
triple the size of what you wrote. If you have to do that, at least
please do it only with messages of other people who haven't made a
specific request against it. Ms. Wilson's post ended with "Thanks for
listening". I guess you didn't hear. Your post was very rude.
