The past couple of years I've noticed that more and more people are forgetting one of the most simple rules of email. Clip the email they're replying to.
Hey it's the polite thing to do. People will appreciate it. Especially those on loops that receive their email by digest (all the messages for a certain stretch of time on a mail loop, e.g., YAHOO loops is sent in one email).
What should you do? You can simply cut and paste into a new email. To cut, use CTRL X. Highlight the section you're responding to by clicking on space before the first word, hold down the left mouse button and "drag" the cursor over the words until you're at the end of the word or sentence. Release the left mouse button. Then hold down the button with "CTRL" on it and press the X. Or you can copy by holding down CTRL and pressing C. Then to paste, hold down the CTRL button and press V. Simple.
What about you? Do you have an email pet peeve? And don't say people fussing about those that won't cut and paste. LOL!
