your message's context.
> 2. Are there guidelines about when to snip/delete portions of previousOur protocols state that you should quote only as much of a message you
are responding to as is necessary to give your message its proper
context and/or to render what you are saying (or why you are saying what
you are saying) intelligible. Just how much of a pervious message needs
to be quoted for any of this to happen is, of course, a judgment call.
But you can always cut and paste the URL of the message to which you are
referring if you feel that the whole of that message is your context.
In any case, it's wise -- if only for visual reasons -- to avoid
retaining lots of a pervious message's text.
Hope this helps.
And is the Journal online yet? If so, where may we see it?
