This is an old idea.  I learned 15 years ago when I cut my teeth on
dial-in BBSes with a 300 baud modem.

This is from one of the many 'netiquette' guides available on the web
at
http://www.fau.edu/netiquette/net/dis.html :

When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly
applicable to your reply. Don't let your mailing or Usenet software
automatically quote the entire body of messages you are replying to
when it's not necessary. Take the time to edit any quotations down to
the minimum necessary to provide context for your reply. Nobody likes
reading a long message in quotes for the third or fourth time, only to
be followed by a one line response: "Yeah, me too."
