Then you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to trim the original down
to just the context that clarifies your response. That's the other
problem with top-posters... nobody trims, so if I want to understand
what they're attempting to say I have to scroll down, read all the
previous messages and then guess which part they're replying to.
Usually the lazy top-poster hasn't said anything worth that much effort.
