I personally think people ought to snip the part that is pertinent to their post 
and leave the rest out.  This is rather easy to do in most email programs.

For example I use Pegasus Mail on my windows machine (a freeware program 
that works great) and Claris Emailer on my Mac (The best email client I have 
run across yet, but only for the MAC, but the Pegasus is close to the Calris in 
the way it works).

Anyway in both of these programs all I have to do is highlight the portion I want 
to include in my response and hit the reply button and only that selection is 
included in the message.  

This helps others to follow the "conversation" with out adding too much to the  

Of course there are a few wonderful souls who, when replying to the digest, 
repost the entire blasted thing.
