Recently, someone replied to one of my posts on our site, simply saying:
Thanks, Dave. My comments are inline
But that was it. On closer inspection, I noticed that the post was a reply by email. I clicked on the little email icon and saw the rest of what they had said, sprinkled in like:

There was an older topic discussing some of this, but I flagged it because it was unclear from reading it was was expected in this situation from reading it (and so it’s since been deleted).
But I’m still unclear about whether this is expected behavior at this point or whether “it depends” on some site settings or the email client, or something else.
Or should we be telling users just not to do that? (If so, perhaps there should be some line in the outgoing email to say so?)
