That is one reason why I still run Eudora Pro, with HTML disabled.

As do I, but with a message that begins by quoting, unedited, an entire previous post, I never get to what the person has to say. I send those messages to the bit bucket - my reasoning is that if someone cannot take the time to edit their quotes they probably have not taken sufficient time in framing their response.

Vincent's post was an excellent example of a succinctly edited post, so it got read.
