[Dshield] RE: Hard to Read this List Sometimes

Over the last few weeks, and especially during the Personal Firewalls and
Snake Oil debate, this list in digest form has become a nightmare to
read. A large number of users are not removing a large amount of
unrequired quoted text from their submission - typically below their Sig
line. In one case the irrelevant quoted text comprised HALF the total text
of the digest Email! When trying to read individual messages seperated
only by: --__--__--; it becomes tiresome finding the next message trying to
wade through the quoted text. So a little courtesy please and trim the fat.
HTML is a pointless debate as everyone disagrees and will continue to
disagree. I'd also imagine a large number of us don't use Linux/Unix as
our OS thus HTML stripping is a no-goer. There is a good reason for
Windows98SE users to avoid HTML mail though -if I could find a way of
embedding an image to the path c:\aux\aux.jpg, possibly <IMG
SRC="file:///c:/aux/aux.jpg>, they'd be kissing their OS goodbye with a BSOD.
Thanks for your time
