Purrrfect :-).  It's all about learning, after all.  Threads like this
always elicit long lists of respondents with differing opinions and it
gives a diversionary interest from time to time (away from purely
technical issues).  At the end of the day a list like this is about
learning - and I learned better netiquette by  using this list. Others
from this list are doing the same now. 

To put some at ease, I can tell you there are some god-awful lists out
there that make the transgressions here pale into insignificance.  One
technical list I subscribe to sees nearly every poster quoting the whole
damned digest (i.e., 12 messages or more) just to make one line of
reply!!!.  Everyone on this list is impeccably behaved by comparison
