So!   He doesn't have any responsibility to respond to all of your posts.
He can respond to whichever ones he wants and ignore all the rest.

That goes for selectively editing.   That is part of the recommended
behavior on the list - to edit out the parts not specifically relevant
to the response so people don't have to wade through a lot of irrelevant
crap to find the actual response.   It is as important as that other
anti-social behavior called top-posting.
