Hi Folks,

I wanted to take a moment to remind you to trim replies. I've rejected a
number of posts to the NIS question because of this.

Please, if you're going to respond to a post, trim the reply to
include only the pertinent portion of the post. Not doing so wastes the
bandwidth, storage, and time of your peers on the list. For those on
metered lines, this is particularly wasteful of their resources.
