I've been noticing the same happening more and more frequently:

For all concerned, here's a snippit from the FAQ under Posting

4.A Quoting Previous Posts
Only quote what directly related to your reply. (Take out .sig files,
excess so-and-so wrote on date: messages, and other things that have
nothing to do with your post.) But *do* leave in something that will
give the readers a hint of what you are talking about... Please put
your reply after the text they refer to, editing the bits that don't
have anything to do with your reply.

The FAQ, people: read it and live it. ;o)

Point taken, and I believe for the most part, correcting slip ups such
as personal trade posts has been taken to private email by myself and
the GridSecs of late.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
