Quoting and Re-quoting

        May I make a suggestion for folks involved with long discussions on
the list?  If two or more messages and responses are being quoted,
sometimes all the quotes marks [ >> ] run together.  That makes it hard to
follow the discussion, _especially_ when someone's reply begins in mid-line
after a quote.

        I suggest in such cases that you insert a blank line in between
major blocks of text.

        This makes it easier to tell who's saying what.

        Just a suggestion, no flame intended or sought.
