I always quote the mail and answer only relevant parts which has
proven, over the years the most effective way of answering since people
immediately see what I'm referring to and it has some resemblence to a
dialog and not a letter exchange.

Another observation that I made on this list is that people do a "Reply
All" instead of a normal "Reply" so that an author that is subscribed
to the list gets the mail twice. Is there some policy or is it "because
everyone does so"?
