I know I am a committer of this foul, but I have been reminded that it is
proper ettiquette to try to trim your postings when you reply to use only
those aspects of the previous posts that you are directly responding to.
This has a huge benefit for those ...
1. using the digest version
2. working on slower machines
3. working on mobile devices
(I have felt this one in particular on my palm-based phone)
4. others I forgot to mention
But please! do not take this in any way to mean ... please be quiet.
the discussion has been great and amazingly informative. I love it!
ps. Our guidelines committee is just putting some of the final touches on
our new guidelines. They will be posted to the website, and translated
shortly there after. Thank you for your patience.
