That assumes that you include the full message you respond to at
the bottom of each reply. So after a 'months or even years' a
simple 'Yes, OK' will include hundreds of useless lines.

When you write a reply, your message will contain a reference
to the one you reply to. If the full context is ever needed,
every half-decent mail reader will find the original message
before you can blink your eyes.

That happens only if the replies quote the full original message,
which is stupid. You quote the parts you respond to, and nothing
else, and put your response to that part after the quote so the
reader knows what you are referring to. In case you fail to grok
this: the first paragraph I wrote refers to the first snippet
quoted from your message, and so on.

If 'moving with the times' means being ignorant and rude then
you're probably right.
