10 Felix,
11 Personally, after years reading LKML, I have no problem with
12 in-line text of _any_ length, especially on the initial post or when
13 you are asked to respond with detailed info. While I understand
14 Bruce's comment I don't think it represents a democratic picture of
15 what this list has been comfortable with over the years.
17 That said, what I do have a BIG problem with is people responding
18 and not taking the time to edit the response down to a few lines that
19 make it clear about what their point is. Many responses to 1000 line
20 emails are 1001 lines - the responder adds a one-liner. That's a real
21 waste.
23 It's a trade off. It's less likely that some of us will go read
24 pastebin stuff, and if we want to respond technically then that's
25 leaving us to copy/paste responses which I'm personally less likely to
26 do.
28 Anyway, you pays your money, you takes your chance... ;-)
30 Cheers,
31 Mark
