Correct, that is why Thunderbird/Seamonkey does display the quotes
correctly, gnus seems not. So it might be a gnus problem, or an error in
my configuration. I had a quick look around (without any statistical
analysis I must add): TB, gnus, and gmail I see most often, plus people
who seem to use Emacs, but it is not clear to me which MUA, like Eli
(most likely rmail). Since I seem to be the only one to complain, maybe my
gnus is badly configured. I asked already in the gnus group.

Ok, this I know, I thought there was some hidden configuration which
would allow you to skip this step.

Ah, ok thanks for clarifying did not know, (or forgot).
