As a courtesy to those using the forums - could those using email please trim
their posts to only quote the relevant material? I just read a post with 2
new lines of data, and over 100 quoted.

Thanks.

Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.

No names, please :-/. I'll do my best. And did you really count them? ;-)

No need to single out forum or email users. The same ettiquette should apply to all.

I agree, and I have been making the effort recently.

OTOH, as one who prefers the email interface, I'm finding that
since the advent of people posting to the forum, the number of
replies with *no* quoted material has increased significantly,
which can make following a thread difficult.

*Sigh.*
