Personally, I would place the name in all caps and rest of the message
in normal formatting... But maybe that's just me.
The next time anyone feels that they need to make small corrections to
the (HUGE) posts that they made, do not quote the whole message to the
list again in this manner - ESPECIALLY in cases like this, where someone
else has already made the correction for you.
That said, URL posting is probably a good idea for something like this,
as well as [SPOILER] tag. After all, not everyone has seen the film.
FYI - In this list, we do not allow overquotation, which is a term for
when people quote too much of the message they are replying to without
adding enough of their own content. Under normal circumstances, if your
original content is approximately half of the total length of the
message, then you're okay. Exceptions are made when it really is
necessary to quote more than what you say (Use your better judgment. You
should know when it is necessary and when it is not).
Also, if you have lost your copy of the list policy that was sent out
upon subscription (or to get the latest version of the list policy),
send mail to <evangelion-help at eva.onegeek.org> or visit <http://eva.onegeek.org/ml/info.html>.
Thank you for reading this message.
