According to RFC 1855 - Netiquette Guidelines

In the section on group replies:
3.1.1 General Guidelines for mailing lists and NetNews

      If you are sending a reply to a message or a posting be sure you
      summarize the original at the top of the message, or include just
      enough text of the original to give a context.  This will make
      sure readers understand when they start to read your response.
      Since NetNews, especially, is proliferated by distributing the
      postings from one host to another, it is possible to see a
      response to a message before seeing the original.  Giving context
      helps everyone.  But do not include the entire original!


Why are those guidelines now considered obsolete? Does your mail client 
not support threading?
