I get the digest so I can't reply to individual messages. My only  
choices are a) compose a new message to reply or b) reply and change  
the subject line (I change it to the subject line that I'm replying to.)

I usually do b).

I do agree that people who hit reply, whether to the whole digest or  
to individual messages, should trim everything from the quoted text  
to refer only to the important part they are replying to. Maybe even  
eliminate the quoted text entirely.

And sorry for top-posting for those who are adamantly opposed to top- 
posting. But it seems nobody here bottom-posts so I go with the flow.
