After 4 or so quote levels, the chances of its having come thru someones 
email agent who doesn't know about proper quoting, or worse yet is so 
used to winslow and the broken quoting its been doing since dos days, 
thinks its doing it right and won't fix it even if called to his 
attention, really is quite astronomical.

After all these years, I only object if something not correct has been 
miss-attributed to me. And its a better than even bet the first person 
to reply to my objection, will do so with an email agent that doesn't do 
it correctly. I swear the damned stuff is self-perpetuating.

Sometimes its not pc to be so friendly you ignore the broken stuff. But 
these lists would get a lot less "friendly" if the perps were called on 
it every time they post.  For a while, but once the offenders fixed 
their agents, I think they would find a new friendliness to a list that 
did enforce it.

Will it actually happen? Chances are I'd have better results offering a 
bridge in Sun City AZ for sale...
