At this point, this add-on would seem to eliminate the need of trimming,
No, no, NO... trimming should still be required.
All QuoteCollapse does is spare me a lot of pain when I encounter morons
who refuse to trim posts...
The inherent problem with trimming is the danger of a message being
trimmed to the point where the point of the conversation is lost, or the
meaning of the conversation has changed.
Another problem is when a new viewer comes to the conversation somewhere
in the middle. Instead of having *all* of the conversation available to
view in a single window, the new viewer now has to sort back though all
the reference messages and try to keep track of which message comes first.
I would rather have them available in one place, rather than scattered
all over the place. :-)
FYI, I see no reason to call someone a moron because you don't like the
way another person replies to a message. :-)
