            by clicking on 'reply all', all the e-addresses are picked up -
therefore, I have to be sure that the 'to' has the sender's e-address and
the 'cc' has the list e-address.

        (2) Just what - or who - is RFC ???
Request for comments

        (3) Thank you for standing up against these list-members who respond
at the bottom !
Actually there are two different philosophies. Top posting works best when only a few people are actively involved in the conversation and all are actively following the thread. For most exchanges this works very well because it mimics a verbal conversation.

Bottom posting is done on lists because someone may not have seen the initial post and the context of the answers and other follow up posts. The idea is that the thread can be followed with the oldest post on top to latest on the bottom as if you are reading a report.

Inline posting is sometimes done when it is easier to answer each issue raised.

I did a combination of inline and bottom posting

Also snip is used to indicate that part of the original has been deleted by the poster
