I would like to require non-lazy quoting, but that is too much to
expect, I guess. Too many people use too many bad editors that apparently
make it hard to do the Right Thing.

For what it is worth, I will repeat my statement that if you use the lazy
quoting method of putting your comments at top and not putting context
in, you reduce the likelihood of me carefully reading the message by
about 90%.
