I have to say I've always found it ironic that listers, claiming (or  
acting like) a reminder is a personal attack- respond with personal  

Audifans has rules which have not changed for years, based off common  
internet email and newsgroup etiquette and experience.  Please  
explain how being reminded to follow those rules, on a site which is  
free and run by volunteer efforts- constitutes arrogance?  Further,  
explain to me how ignoring rules, arguing when asked to follow them,  
and inferring you know better than people who have been doing this  
for a decade- does not constitute arrogance?

Digests, which are supposed to go out daily, also have a size limit-  
and long messages will trigger extra digests unnecessarily if those  
messages were long simply because people kept quoting pages of past  
emails.  It's not just our bandwidth (which is donated, and will  
cease to be if Audifans makes a nuisance of itself), but that of  
readers- not everyone has a cablemodem.  It's not just physical disk  
limitations- not trimming replies makes effective indexing more  
difficult, polluting search results.
