I'm all for trimming quotes. I think Rick has expressed an opinion on
the matter that very closely resembles my own. Sorry, do you have an
example of me not trimming quoted text or something? If so, please send

a blog on the Internet, which you all may be interested
in visiting, I talked about what I am now saying here."
