I do this too in personal correspondence.  It's probably not even a problem
on a list like this as long as the ONLY thing left is the last person's
post.  Unfortunately, what happens it that people don't cut the posts of ANY
of the previous posters, so the messages get longer and longer.  When we get
to the traffic level that we go to a digest form it will be miserable to
have to scroll through all that stuff.
