Until it becomes such an unwieldy and nasty message...  Sometimes I 
take out some of the messages to avoid gargantuan replies.

Sometime I post inline to directly respond to certain viewpoints.  
Otherwise you tend to get that nasty... "um.. you didn't answer that 
question" syndrome.

I think quoting relevant info is good, not sure on the entire bit.  
Some of the other mailing lists I am on suggest I do not quote every 
little detail to avoid the gargantuan replies of doom.  ;)
