Brent and David,

Not to be snippy here --- or maybe the honest phrasing is, "to _be_ 
snippy about snipping" --- but have neither of you ever encountered the 
concept of snipping out the irrelevant portions of a message to which 
you are responding? 

In the present instance at least, readers had to page down through three 
to four _screenfuls_ of essentially irrelevant quotes in Brett's 
original posting in order to get to _three lines_ of actual information, 
and then do this once again in David's reply to get to his _two lines_ 
of further response?

Doesn't your newsreader make it easy to do that?
