Some people do receive mail on devices like cellphones and so on, which
usually charge per megabyte received. Sure, it might not be much, but over
the course of a month or so of list mail, it probably adds up.
If you're using Outlook, there's a lovely little program called
Outlook-Quotefix available here:
I've been using it for years (on one of the lists I post to, top-posting is
considered a kick-off-list offence), and it's a great tool.

General netiquette is that sigs should be no more than 4 lines. That
includes really annoying corporate disclaimers. Since we're on the subject
of netiquette, it'd be nice if people posting from their offices might have
a word with their IT departments about this. Posting a url for a disclaimer
might be a good alternative if you really *must* have a ridiculously long
disclaimer on the damned thing.
