That's like saying that the frame isn't a relevant part of a portrait. You are critiquing something using a criteria which is not based on its purpose.I think any prior signature should not be included in a quote one is responding to. Doing so creates the essence of the problem I've been experiencing with these messages. If you want to make reference to the person you're responding to, you can add an addressee, as Shal does (and as I am now doing for the strictly technical purpose of subverting the collapsing), and/or you can leave the attribution created by the system ("xyz wrote..."). Sigs don't belong in quoted text IMHO.
Messages are the sole opinion of the author, especially the fishy ones.
