Time will tell, although I hope not.

For those of you who do not know what netiquette is it is 
good manners for email and net news.  It also helps you 
communicate more effectively with other people in this medium

Here are the basic rules on how it should work:

when commenting on or replying to an article/email do the

1: Comment below the text you are commenting on, this makes
the readers job of figuring out what you are commenting on

2: Delete stuff that you are not commenting on from your message,
again it helps the reader.  

3: do not edit for content to the point the content changes, 
this is dishonest ans should not be done.

This benefits all of us as it fosters good discussions.
