But it does give a tip that if the quoted text is longer then the 
response, not enough has been trimmed.  In my opinion, that is far too 
drastic for a support group.

TB can import directly from Eudora.  How effective it is, I don't know, 
since I've not used Eudora, but the option is there.

  That was a good one Lee.  Thanks for the humor. These

Chris, I don't understand the point of your post at all. Maybe you could

That's the point. Here and in the tech support groups sniping is frowned 
on. But if you don't do drastic snipping in Developer groups then your 
on the outs.

So you never know what the right thing to do. If frown on sniping, then 
you should leave it alone even if its six screens full or more.

Or if you demand snipping then it should be original post plus last 
reply and everything in between cut out.
