Reminder: The delete button is useful, also while doing "reply"...

Many times, people reply to a message by quoting a whole message and adding 
a few lines.

This can result in very long messages after a while.

A more useful habit is to quote just the part you're replying to, and then 
write your own comment. It's then easy for others to see which of the many 
points in a long message (or message thread) you're replying to.

It takes a little longer for the sender, but saves a *lot* of time (and 
disk space!) for the recipient.

Please - show consideration.
