Yes, that is basically it, and if you are only communicating with one
other person, maybe that is reasonable.  However, since our emails are
read by thousands, we have a responsibility to make them as clear as
possible, and that includes trimming and quoting relevant parts of
messages.  However, as much as I try, I still regularly have typos in my
emails.  :-(

And you are right in your earlier email in saying that "don't top-post"
or "bottom-post" is not clear enough in explaining how to properly
"trim-post", as you stated.  Some people trim-post automatically, while
others have never thought about it since their communication is almost
always informal.
