Someone should really read that:
There are many other documents like that on the internet.
For all of you quote-afterers, know that people have been here communicating
on the net long long long ago, and that quoting style is not to be discussed.
It is as it is, and must be followed. It is an unspoken agreement that when
you reply to an email, you reply AFTER the quote. It's a needed standard. If
the standard was to quote before, I would fiercely support quoting before.
Reasons are irrelevant, only the accepted standard is important.
Like on which side of the road we drive. It doesn't matter, as long as
everyone drives on the same side.
