No, I wasn't meaning you in particular.
Keeping threads intact is a good idea since it makes the conversation
easy to review on the list. But that's to do with how each message
refers back to its ancestors in the message header.
I suspect you are referring to the previous comments in the body of the
message. Trimming them down is a great idea and is good etiquette.
I have a show in construction about this topic which should be ready in
