Re: number of people acceptable to keep everyone unmuted during a meeting?

I'm a regular reader of Brian Vogel's posts on this as well as other lists. If he quoted several paragraphs of a person's message or even the entire message itself before posting a response I would agree that this would be problematic for some screen reader users. However, he usually just quotes one or two relevant sentences from the message to which he's responding followed by a hyphen. This is actually helpful as it can provide context as to the subject matter of his posts. If I've missed reading the original message but am curious about the topic this small quote gives me a good idea as to what, specifically, he's going to be writing about. If I'm responding to someone who may be asking several questions in one single message I will also quote each question, with my response below the question. There are several advantages to this method and I feel that this is also acceptable. There are definitely responsible and irresponsible ways to quote. Some are appropriate and can be very helpful. Others are unhelpful and are a waste of bandwidth. I feel that Brian's use of quoting is both responsible and more than acceptable.
