Headers are a non-issue, as most of us don't have a lot of control over
that.  What we do have control over is quoting.  How many times have
you seen messages with several pages of quoted text and 'me too!' at
the bottom?  No matter how many times you post netiquette guidelines
against over quoting, i.e., quote only enough of the original post to
clarify your comment, people just don't get it.  Or are too lazy to use
the delete key.  

Sorry, it's a pet peeve of mine.
