Agreed, but did you see GH's comment as offensive? If I'd been on the
receiving end I'd have taken it as a reference to the scads of
inadvertently quoted text. PgDn to see just how much there was.

Anyhow, I've been subjected to far worse (c/o Brits and Australians this
week), and generally take the view that deliberate insults say more about
the insulter than the insulted. It's only email yatter.

True, but that extra step is easily overlooked. In T'bird you can just
highlight the bit you want quoted and press Ctrl/5 for Quote in Reply (or
RMB option) or Ctrl/6 for Quote in Reply to All (ditto), and they get
copied into a reply email with no trimming necessary. I've not found a way
to do this in OE.
