    That's Lawry's e-mail that has the "On Behalf Of..." in the header (or would it be footer?). He had replied to me thinking I was you and I subsequently replied to him above.

    I think it's the way e-mails are being replied to. Many hare, including me, reply after the quoted text. Lawry's setup (and possibly others too) has it where the reply comes before the quoted text. It's no big deal until there's a whole lot of quoted text with back and forth and multiple replies included. Then it gets challenging to figure out who said what. I often have troble following Kenneth's replys because the way his quoting works, IIRC the indentions are confusing.

    I guess Wade's ultraconcise approach to quoting and replying has its advantages.
