Well, lots of people doing that would certainly cut down on the
apparent volume of this list, as more and more inconsiderate oafs

A mail reader can't compensate for an inconsiderate poster; trimming
quotes can be done effectively only by someone who is considering
the details of just what bits they're responding to, the rhythm of
the dialogue, and so on.
A poster without the wit and willingness to do that can be plonked
with confidence that you'll lose nothing of value.
