what do you mean by "inline posting"?

Yes. I am also often anoyed by such thoughtless replies to replies to replies...
where each contains the full original mail.
How to find what was *realy* added in such mails?

If I get a mail (from a list or whatever) I expect that the sender wants me
to read the *whole* mail so he should only repeat that part from the original mail
which is needed to understand the reply and delete the rest.
Doing not so is an annoyance.
