To a large extent, yes. But it's also down to the fact that most email 
software starts the reply at the top so people don't even notice that 
they are quoting 10MB of previous dialogue. Also, a lot of email systems 
hide the previous dialogue when composing a reply. (These are the same 
reasons that lead to "top posting" which annoys so many of the old 
timers around.)

However, this will get much further off topic really fast so in the 
interest of not annoying others, please let's not start a debate about 
top posting vs. bottom posting or try to convince others that the entire 
email dialogue should be included in every reply.
