The original link led me to a page stating: "It seems we can't find what
you're looking for".
I couldn't find an updated link on the original host (i.e.
metasystema.net) to that content, but was able to find what I believe is
the original content of this page at:
http://marc.merlins.org/netrants/reply-to-useful.html [1]

That page has a link to the parent/root page leading to
http://marc.merlins.org/netrants/listreplyto.html which explicitly
states that the link [1] is a local copy of the original link:
http://www.metasystema.net/essays/reply-to.mhtml. Hence, I have no doubt
that the content is accurate and replacing the link should be fine.
Any objections?

Going to http://learn.to/quote tries to bring up some advertisement
popup (which my browser blocked and I didn't review). The page just
shows some php-errors:

/*"Warning*//: require(/include/afaik.de-header.inc.php3): failed to
open stream: No such file or directory in
line //*2*//
////*Fatal error*//: require(): Failed opening required
(include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in
line //*2"*/

I could find a replacement which claims to be a local copy of the
content which was available at the now broken linked page. Again I don't
have any doubt that this is a correct capture of the original content
(though it might not have been the latest version). Still, IMO this
seems to be a reasonable replacement for the broken link, or does
anybody think otherwise?
