Hi Anne and Jay,

(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

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


Please review for more information on posting.

This topic has been covered several times on this list. FYI, we recommend bottom posting if possible along with inline posting, in order to preserve the flow of discussion for all.

It just makes it easier for everyone to work on the lists if we adopt the same way of responding to email.

Thanks for your help.
