An additional point: this is especially the case with the digests.

If you don't snip in the digest, you will send the entire day's mail to
the list again. *please* don't - even those of us with large amounts of
bandwidth sometimes pay per meg we download, and I'd rather spend my
money on something other than reading the same 10-100kb of mail twice :)

Not to mention that the people who host this list also want to keep the
volume down due to costs.
