Could everyone on this list please keep in mind that it is improper
to forward an entire preceding message (let alone two, three, or six
levels of them) after you append two or three of your own precious
lines to the top? 

You're all supposed to be Internet experts. One is aware that the
worst mailer program in the history of humankind, Microsoft Outfukt,
defaults to this behaviour, but you must have enough skill to
override it. (It's in your Settings. Under battle conditiond, Select
All, Delete, and type your important three lines.)

HTML messages are also ill-advised, and these too are Outfukt
defaults.

If this seems a tad nitpicky to you, answer this question: How would
*you* like to plow through three preceding messages with a screen
reader?
