It is true that many expect a lot out of their modems, even 14.4K and 28.8K.
Here is another one that not only will interested more people but also free
up some bandwidth on the Internet:

Quote only the parts of a message that are necessary and
let's make an effort to delete the dangling piece of a replied
to message. It's only a click, drag and <delete> away.

I've been noticing more and more short replies with an ever growing tail of
generations of quoted quoted quoted ... message. For example, your message,
of only a few lines, had the entire original message tagging along for the
ride - about 30 lines! I took the second to delete the now deadwood and
spare the 'Net.

Just a late night thought.
