irrelevant what *you* want to receive, the other thousands of RCPT's are 
what counts!


the whole point is, and then you don't need to scroll nor top-post:

If you include the original message in your reply, trim it so that only 
the relevant lines, enough to establish context, are included. Chances 
are (since this is a mailing list) we've already read the original message.

and P.S: no need for reply-all!
