This is an *international* list. The fact that hard drives and internet connections are cheap where *you* live does not mean that this is the case for everybody on this list. For example, many people in Europe still have metered dial-ups, which means they are paying for every minute they are online, so additional size (be it HTML or uncropped quotes) will cost them money, especially on a high-traffic list like this one. Besides that, even if both resources are "relatively" cheap - why should anybody be forced to spend money if he is content with what he had so far, at least if it can be as easily avoided as in this case?
Good points Thomas.
