It's from Google Groups, Hywel. It's hard to educate a user as to what
netiquette is about /in full/. Many Google Groups users do not intend to
engage in heavy UseNet activity (or else a news reader would be used and
many ISP's have newsservers). Hence, they would not have much interest in
that link you provided.

There are worse 'sins' than neglecting to quote. How about top-posting,
making it an HTML-formatted message contained AS AN ATTACHMENT (all CAPS)
with an 8-line sig? It almost becomes amusing.

Thanks muchly for the follow-up, Morgan.
