If the previous stuff is ignorable, it doesn't need to be quoted. Top
posting while quoting material that is ignorable is lazy and not
appreciated by most participants on *this* forum. Please snip ignorable
material, and then post your reply *below* what you are commenting on, so
that ALL can easily participate in this forum using this standard format.
P.S. OWEN, PLEASE STOP CC'ING ME ON REPLIES. EITHER REPLY TO ME ONLY, OR
TO THE LIST (WHICHEVER YOU PREFER), BUT NOT TO BOTH.
pps: Lazily clicking "reply to all" and sending off a message (with an
unwanted *attachment* no less) cc'd to a bunch of people who don't need
duplicate replies typically goes hand in hand with top posting. These are
clear signs of someone who is too lazy to bother with following standard
conventions, and who thinks that it's OK to do the lazy "easy" thing even
when it inconveniences others.
