I don't mind top or bottom posters, and this is the perfect opportunity
show everyone a phrase I've seen on the PS2 newsgroup:
A- because it disturbs the flow of logic.
Q- Why do people frown upon top posting?
I prefer reading top posts to having to look down through pages of
unsnipped thread to find a one line response. On proper conferencing
systems quoting is unnecessary of course, which teaches you to look back
up the thread if there is something you want to know. Most text only
newsgroups have enough retention to allow you to do this.
My newsreader puts the cursor at the bottom, though I would still have to
go back up through to do my snipping !!
I don't really mind because top posting is their in front of you when you
look at the message but that's only good if you've been following the
thread, but if not it would be a bit annoying looking at the latest post and
fingering out which comes next. all well I'll leave everyone to argue about
it. (I used to top post until I saw that phrase :-).
