lol - MY keyboard has this "Page-Down" button and a "Down-Arrow"
button which allows me to quickly scroll down a post to find what is
new - if I have already read the original post.
But I have no button that quickly lets me see and review that
original post if it has been snipped, which allows me no context with
which to ascertain the new poster's meaning - unless by some off
chance I remember the original post verbatim, which is unlikely.
Get a better newsreader...
*I* like having the whole post quoted each time, *I* have no problem
using my keyboard keys to skip over text *I* don't need to re-read,
so *I* am considerate of others and do the same...
It's not a difficulty, but I get annoyed when I have to hit page down
six times just to see that someone added 4 m's to the bottom. It's not
that it's difficult, it's just a waste of time.
If you work in an administrative environment,
[snip] You're making a valid point but this isn't an administrative
environment. There are lots of etiquette that you follow in the office
that you don't follow in a coffee shop. Usenet is much more like a
coffee shop than an office.
Some (not all) of the newbies on Usenet like to snip relevant parts
of a post so they can change the subject or further their own point
of view. Similar to what political spin-doctors do.
True, that's why the "rule" is to remove the irrelevant parts and leave
the relevant parts.
