On the flip side of this coin, I don't think it's too much of a stretch
to ask sighted users to follow RFC 1855, which states:

"Be brief without being overly terse. When replying to a message,
include enough original material to be understood but no more. It is
extremely bad form to simply reply to a message by including all the
previous message: edit out all the irrelevant material."

One might also make the point that tossing a reply up at the top, but
including several hundred lines of history is equally bad form.
