Yes, that is one of my pet peeves! I think the "reply button" is one of the
worst inventions ever made, if you want to include quoted material you
should be required to laboriously type it all in, but that damn button
makes it too easy; so with long threads you often get a confusing nest of
quotes of quotes of quotes of quotes of quotes of quotes of quotes. And
then finally we come to new material, two words, "I disagree". Huh? You
disagree with what?
