I try to sometimes but i guess i could try more often. It negates one of the advantages of
top-posting and sometimes when i have tried this it has led to other flame-wars about what is good
trimming and what isn't. Also i'm not sure that appeasing the bullies would be a good idea.
Giving ground encourages them to push more.
I do like using the Nabble interface when i get the chance and i hope that helps with the issue for
the non-bullies that may also be affected.

As a fellow "users" list taking content in my email stream, I have no issue with your chosen style
of participation and with rare exception find your comments germane and correct--which is my metric
for viable contribution. You're doing just fine.
However--when replying--could you take just a moment longer and trim your "reply". That simple
action greatly improves the flow of the thread whether in a reader, in a mail tool (Outlook), or
from the Nabble interface.
Suspect that would lessen the ire of the pontiffs of newsgroup style lurking in the forum.
