Hides non-essential parts of emails and Usenet posts

't-prot' (TOFU Protection) is a filter which improves the readability of email messages and Usenet posts by hiding some of their annoying parts. It handles mailing list footers, signatures, TOFU, sequences of blank lines, and repeated punctuation. TOFU is an acronym that stands for "Text oben, Fullquote unten", a German reference to the practice of adding just a few lines of original text and quoting a complete message below them.
