  I cannot make sense of that regexp, but it fails to capture my quoting
  convention while allowing for a number of others.  It should be tuned for
  this newsgroup.  Since I appear to produce more original content than I do,
  the numbers are more than slightly off mark for the "OCR" bit.

  Why?  This seems completely bogus to me and might indicate that it has been
  tuned for a different newsgroup.
