unnecessary quoted material needs to be snipped. If replying to a post
with several points, it is useful to intersperse the answers directly
below each section, snipping unnecessary text as you go along.
>Does anyone know the exact etiquette pertaining to this, if so pleaseI believe it is dependent on the culture of the group. Some groups are
OK with top posting while others will let you know that it is frowned
upon. Either way, who wants to sift through a 200 line post just to see
the "I Agree" at the bottom. Just as bad for top posters is a couple of
word reply followed by 300 lines of untrimmed text.
