This isn't a compromise, it's going to the opposite extreme.
Don't quote the entire email. In fact, don't quote anything
at all when you reply. On k-9 mail there's a little x button (in the default config)
that I can click to get rid of all the quotes text.
I think we should always do that except when you want to call attention to a particular
snippet (I hope no more than about three lines).
It is much more helpful to include some context when replying.
Obviously not the whole email with one line inserted somewhere, but
enough text to understand the reply. Maybe if you're having a
one-on-one exchange with someone, you don't need that, but especially on
a mailing list like this with so much traffic, I don't want to have to
read through the previous emails to find out what you're replying to.
P.S. I block read receipt requests.
