That is an excellent way for newsgroups where discussion is the norm.
When used as a helpdesk, many of the "helpers" want all of the
conversation to be quoted in each post because they can't be bothered to
look back at previous posts in the conversation to gather facts to help
I treat them *all* as discussion groups. I agree that inline and liberal
snippage is best.
