[Coral-List] re size of email

I have a quick practical suggestion to reduce the size of the Coral List 
emails.  Usually more than half of each email contains quoted portions 
of previous messages, even when the thread is obvious.  Often I have to 
scroll a long way down from a message because of its quoted material 
before I can find the next message.  Therefore I suggest that everyone 
making a posting undertakes a little deletion work when 'replying' to 
the list, thus saving a lot of download and scrolling activity of all of 
the other members of the list.  This has to be a winner on utilitarian 
grounds!  If the thread of the message to be posted needs highlighting, 
it's simple enough to make a reference to the issue number and the 
author of the original message that is the subject of the reply.
