I used the following script, and ended up piping it through tools
I know better than perl, as shown at the end:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;

while (<>) {
   s/^[[:digit:]:]{5} //;           # trim leading time
   s/^[[:space:]]*//mg;             # trim leading spaces
   s/^<[ +@]?([[:alnum:]_-]+)>//;   # convert nickname format
   chomp;                           # remove newlines
   s/\[/\n[/g;                      # reinsert newlines
print "\n";

# read NICK; perl debate-reply-trim.pl | fmt -w 350 \
# | sed -e "s,^,[$NICK]," | tr -s ' '

I am sure this can be majorly improved.
