A nice way to put this:
Dear Newbie,
    Many of us read this list via our Newtons. Please when replying to a post
only include the few lines needed to make your posting understandable.
Including all the text from a post is not necessary and is a real pain to us
reading on a Message Pad. It seems that everytime we get a new member this
happens. Please correct it.

Now both of you kiss and make up nice or I will take your stylus away.

Another e-list snob.

This Old Newt is trying to give another Dell Croswords Game card for Newton
But no one seems to want to answer the simple trivia questions. I cant
believe it.
