Editing quoted posts

The problem is if you reply to a digest and quote the entire digest, 
then because sending digests depends on the size of the digest having 
passed a fixed value (40K bytes), you will cause another digest to be 
sent immediately.

If everyone did this then digests would cease to be digests.

So it helps if you edit out digests' contents and change the subject 
line to the topic of interest when replying.

It's not a big sin if anyone gets it wrong.
