imho the number of people adverse to top postings equals more or less the
number of people being annoyed by down-postings.
just recently i got mail over 4 pages (with a screen 19200x1200 and 11px
font!) with just one (and above all rather meaninmgless) sentence below.
ususally i know from the subject and a short glance a) what the thread was
about or b) if i am inclined to read the mail.
this top/down is not going to solve anything ... there are imho two rules
to be observed instead:
- use meaningful subjects
- quote only what is absolutely necessary
and btw: for the sake of future generations and the archive:
_never_ do something like "oh! i found a solution! it's here:
there is little more annoying but searching the archives for a specific
problem, hitting a "solved"-post and seeing it points to a dead link w/o
citing the solution!
