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 /kunden/156453_33729/hosting/4833/afaik.de/usenet/faq/zitieren/zitieren.php3 on 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?

Regards,
Stefan

I think: thank you for taking care of these issues, and I am happy with
any positive changes you make.
