Assuming we can identify them, perhaps.  

At any rate, I very much like the way that the wordwrap solution 
worked out on http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Main/SampleNoWrap.  It produces
a clean display that "makes sense", and it's pretty clear to the
author what is happening and how it can be fixed.

It also allows us to easily see that the text is somehow "different"
from its surrounding text -- in this case the monospace text represents 
quotes/replies from a different person.  Simply stripping the leading
whitespace would lose that information, where I think an editor should
probably decide how the text should be marked up to keep the
distinctions clear (e.g., with a wikistyle or other markup).
