I'm not even going to bother reading that link, Simon. When you are following a threaded conversation, it doesn't make any sense to see the quoted material at the top of the post. It's a footnote, just in case you're jumping into the middle of a thread. Seems like common sense to me.
p.s. i'm soooo confused...is linux-apps the right list for this?
