I'm sure this has been addressed before, so forgive me.  I just wore out 
the scroll button on my mouse, spinning down through all the repeated 
text re-posted as replies on threads.  In my mail-reader, I can choose 
to eliminate, retain or edit previous text.  In a few instances, on long 
threads with anonymous titles, it may be helpful to repeat snippets of 
original comments when replying.  But for heaven's sake, can't we just 
post relevant replies without re-posting the entire thread in its 
entirety?  I can't imagine those of you with the little hand-held 
devices and small screens scrolling down through all that redundant 
text.  And those of us who use desktop computers have the simple option 
of deleting previous text and replies.

Sorry if this flames some of you.  I had to buy a new mouse.
