The problem is just that most people do not think to trim down posts.
If you feel someone should remove part of the message, you can simply
tell them off-list ( because I think the constant reminder of top
posting on the list is a little bit annoying ). Just be nice, most
posters may not realize how it appear on other people screen, and may
not be accustomed to using a ml for every communication, hence the
netiquette rules.
