> Are we supposed to trim everything except our own replies?

good question, chris, and thanks for asking -- it shows your consideration
for other subscribers

the answer is no -- trim as much as possible, but no more, to retain the
sense of the conversation

the evolt guidelines (http://lists.evolt.org/index.cfm/a/listinfo) state:

   5.  When responding to a post, delete all information that is not
          strictly necessary. This includes the evolt.org tag line and .sig
          files. Delete anything you're not specifically responding to.

oh, and the part you are replying to goes above your reply

for a good explanation and example, see matt haughey's article
