Pointless Peeve

Does no one learn basic netiquette anymore? When I got online in 95, one of the things drummed into my head was snipping emails. It was considered rude and a waste of bandwidth to reply over and over again to an email, leaving all the forwarding gobbeldygook. But snipping seems to be a rarity these days. And on an email list, it drives me crazy! I'm sick and tired of getting an email that's been replied to 10 times and I get screens of old stuff along with a few words of new stuff! If it's a single, personal reply that includes my original message, that's one thing, but on a list please, for the love of pete, snip your emails!! Pweeeeeese!!

Okay, I feel better now.

(and don't even get me started on HTML 'enhanced' email!)
