Not only *that*.

There's also RFC 1855.
Published in 1995, almost 30 years ago ...(!)

Netiquette Guidelines

2.1 User Guidelines
2.1.1 For mail: (Pg 3)

- Be brief without being overly terse. When replying to a message,
include enough original material to be understood but no more. It
is extremely bad form to simply reply to a message by including
all the previous message: edit out all the irrelevant material.

DNG is gratiously hosted at lists.dyne.org.
ie: completely free.

It is done with *no* strings attached save the (basic) requirement of
respecting differences in opinion and philosophy, with all that said
behaviour entails.

Now, all *that* costs money but dyne.org still keeps your data

Top posting and excessive/unneeded quoting increases *all*
associated list-maintenance costs.

Last but not least, top posting is a sign of disrespect and
intellectual laziness.

Thank you very much for your intelligent humour/comment.
