... to trim your quotes. It really isn't necessary to quote 30 lines in order to
attach a 3-line response, and it makes _finding_ your response text

(Related comment: I like the idea of XML markup for delimiting quote and
response, but  indentation, or a > mark in the first column, is faster for a
human in a hurry.)
