Yes! This is a good description of what I meant with "showing
respect" or "to deal with" the message. If your headers are
kept working, and you can also use "[...]" or "[dd]" (or any
other indication that you clipped something) the "quoted"
aspect is still fully valid. And if you worry about the
blasphemy: there's always the reference (!) to the original
message which can be consulted.

Thanks for mentioning this one - I thought I was the only one
who noticed that. Oh, must be my PC's snob mode again... ;-)
