I hardly think my request to correctly quote posts constituted a
"telling-off".  I thought it was a polite and generally relevant request
and I'm sorry if it was not interpreted that way.  While in this case
there was no damage, some of the discussions on internet groups can get
quite heated (like this one?) and I stand by my assertion that people
generally want to be quoted correctly.  If your system allows it, posts
should always be checked before sending them out.  I know I've really put
my foot in my mouth when I've failed to do that in the past, so I'm
speaking from experience.
