Notice that I am top posting as suggested by the guidelines ...

I don't get involved in these disputes, mainly because they are characterised by intransigence and _ad hominem_ arguments - and I won't do so now. But you simply cannot expect to argue based on a falsehood! When you wrote this, the guidelines (at ) did not suggest top posting, but rather anything but:

... please do interspersion with trimming [...]. For a simple reply, this is equivalent to bottom-posting. So, remove extraneous material, and place your comments in logical order, after the text you are commenting upon.

But since then someone has changed this to remove any sort of guidance at all. Perhaps you made the change?! Or perhaps the original culprit did? It's a fun system - isn't it? - when those who are directed to guidelines and find they don't like them simply change them!
