Most people and especially those that are new to the lists willPerhaps you have encountered that somewhere:
top-post because that is what they are most familiar with.
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is it such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?
In my entire life I have never seen any mailing list or Usenet group with so
much top-posting and unneeded quotes as this one. Since this is user support
group, it should be just ignored in most cases (we want to help user, not
bully them). But I think that people who often write to group should adapt to
basic mailing etiquette. It isn't that hard, really.
I hate bottom (!) posting because I think it is the most unnatural one!
When I speak to you I normally answer to your question without (!) repeating your question first!!! This is "The natural way", isn't it???
When I read one mail (in a mailing list too!!!) I normally have already red all the previous ones!!! All the previous ones!!!
If I failed to do it, I already would have to know that I'll must start from bottom... Full stop, imho!
I think bottom posting is born only (!) to enable people to start reading a thread from any point and not from the start... But what we yield is far from be a "natural way"...: when I read one mail I expect to read the answer to the the previous one, that is supposed to already be red!
My 2 euro cents! ;-)
