I'm not sure I've ever seen the words 'easy' and 'pine' used in the same 
sentence before.  Pine has to have the most counterintuitive interface 
known to man.

I usually hold the shift key down while using the down-arrow to move 
over the parts to remove which will select/highlight it, hit delete at 
the end of the irrelevant part, arrow on down past the relevant context 
to add my response below it, repeating if there is more than one section 
continuing in the conversation.  Seems natural to me, works in just 
about every GUI-type mailer and the cursor moves down as fast as I can 
read so it doesn't slow anything down.
