Actually,
 
My Outlook Express does the same thing when I reply.  I hate it.  But I do not know how to turn it off.
 
Does any one know how to turn off the feature that includes the bar on the left, when I reply myself?

>why do you do it?
 
I'm a top poster.  I hate having to essentially re-read the previous email to find the added reply comments (especially when it's a long email and you ultimately just find an added "yeah me too" way down at the bottom).  I find that incredibly annoying.  I prefer replies where you pick-out what you're replying to and copy it to the top along with your reply.  Concise.  The originals are all there below for reference if you want them, but you don't have to scroll down to find the reply.  You can more clearly see the chain of replies too (when each reply edits the same body, it quickly becomes impossible).
 
I know it's a religious preference / argument and there's no right or wrong, only a preference ... but you wanted to know "why", so ...
 
peace

I respectfully disagree and think that WCA's position of less regulation and allowing network operators operate their networks how they want is the right approach.  Net neutrality legislation opens the door for content companies and your subscribers to force open and equal access to all content on the Internet.
 
>>>>   I don't see the problem with content companies and subscribers having equal access to each other.   That, after all... IS WHAT I PROVIDE!
 
How many WISPs on this list are limiting P2P traffic separate from other traffic?  I'll bite... I am.
 
>>>>  Me too, but this has little to do with net neutrality, since peer to peer sharing involves HOSTING, and that I specifically don't generally allow.   Terms of Service has covered hosting forever - since long before Napster was someone's dream. 
 
How many WISPs on this list are prioritizing VoIP traffic separate from other traffic?  I'll bite.  I am.  And I only prioritize VoIP traffic to and from my own VoIP servers and not VoIP traffic from Vonage or anyone else.
 
>>>>>  I will eventually, and I will be entirely neutral as to whose servers it goes to...after all,  if I can't serve my customer's needs, then what the heck am I?   A fraud?
 
How many WISPs on this list are filtering NetBIOS, RPC, and other traffic deemed malicious?  I'll bite... I am again.
 
>>>>>  Yeah.   Me too.   Again, this has nothing whatsoever to do with limiting access to content.
 
Now the last one, I can't imagine being sued over, but I hope you see my point.
 
These controls are important for me to manage my network and ensure a quality of service my customers expect.
 
Net neutrality takes these controls away.
 
>>>>  I seriously doubt that.

The WCA is showing its true colors..  the WCA stands for the interests of
Verizon, AT&T Wireless, Sprint, and the other big Cell Carriers (many of
which incidentally are owned by AT&T, Bell South, and Verizon RBOCs).  With
statements like this, I don't believe that the WCA will ever be looking out
for the interests unlicensed WISPs.

If you think that blocking net neutrality is the path to "controlling your
own network", you have missed the entire point.  Without effective net
neutrality legislation, the RBOCs and the CableCos will own the internet and
tariff the hell out of the traffic that flows through it.  It will be one
more nail in the coffin of the mom-n-pop operator that can't afford to pay
tariffs to get their subscribers access to "premium" content.  It will drive
the customers of small operators to switch to the RBOCs and CableCos because
those networks will be the only "fast" networks or the only ones that have
"access" to everything on the internet.
