Actually, I appreciated Judy's tip, (being relatively new to this format) though her suggestion that I relished it, for some crazy reason, is rather unfounded. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <email@example.com> wrote:
OTOH, some posters have scolded some other posters for NOT snipping! Go figure!

Apparently he doesn't like to feel that he's part of a discussion, so he gets rid of it all before posting. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <email@example.com> wrote: It all depends on what software you're using. I've been monitoring FFL messages in IE and Firefox and I've noticed that some posts don't include what the person is responding to. However, when you hit reply sometimes the messages appear when you scroll down. And, I've also noticed that hardly anyone follows the netiquette protocols for formatting messages anymore. It sure would be helpful if people would do some formatting using the old style right angle bracket, but now I realize that's really asking to much of people, since mainly they are just shooting from the hip with one-liner snickers. There seem to be only about two serious respondents left here anyway. So, I'm using Thunderbird to send and reply to text only posts, but when I want to include an image I use Chrome, which has a nice feature to key in the location of the image URL. I haven't figured out what happened to the 'source view' in Neo to include an image URL. I've also noticed that several people have not figured out how to make an active URL link in any program. Go figure. P.S. At this point, I'm not even posting with the expectation that anyone but lurkers would read this stuff, so it's mostly for them to be amused with.

You don't do that, and it makes it look as though you don't want to actually have a discussion but rather only to make proclamations.
