On Overquoting

Forgive the humble request, but I know I would appreciate, in many
instances, more selective quoting on clc. My spacebar appreciates it,
as well. I can hear it talking to me. Where's my coffee?

When I was first on usenet, the newsreader I used at wustl was trn. It
enforced a 50% new content rule. Good practice. Of course, after a
while it wasn't too difficult to figure out that it just counted lines
with quote delimiters and ones without, so you toss in a few blank
lines here and there. Maybe half a dozen at the end before your name.

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
