The spirit is right but the letter is wrong. (The appearance of " "
might lead many to expect an exact quotation.) 

FAQ 2.2 (http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#toask) 
says precisely

"Majordomo sometimes misreads posts and in particular can chop the first
line."

   Martin uses the <> at the top of his messages because Stata FAQ 2.2  
(see:  http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#before )  
states that the list server can sometimes "chop the first few lines"  
of an email/posting.    So, his <> symbol will be cut if any of the  
server does remove the first line(s).
