I usually snip the original text, leaving just the relevant sentences or
prhases, for clairity of what I am responding to. I'd rather spend the time
to carefully compose and proofread my response, than to rephrase what has
already been written.
I have found that composing takes a lot of time. I can write a couple of
paragraphs of message, in what seems like maybe 10 minutes, and then look at
the clock and see that actually 30-45 minutes has gone by. Maybe that's
just me, though.
What I find objectionable is when someone copies the entire message
verbatum, often including all headers, over their reply. That is wastful of
inbox space, and makes the messages tedious to read.
I know it's easy to forget and hit the reply button before deleting or
editing the original text, since most e-mail programs are set up to send
back the original text by default. As I recall, that default setting can be
changed on most progs.
