A question was asked and several > possible solutions were provided based on that original > question. All the "conversation" was relevant IMO. But long before it was done it was impossible to tell who had asked which questions, who had provided which answers and who had countered those answers. In several instances, replies appeared to be directed to the wrong individuals. Some people here tend to go way too far when trimming context from replies. Yes, I know it gets difficult to read when there are more than ten or twelve levels of attribution, but stripping all but the last layer is even worse. Removing the participants names from the top should be a hanging offense. I don't keep copies of every message in any of the dozens of mailing lists and news groups I follow, so there is no simple way to go back through the conversation to figure out where it all came from.
