Everything in Internet must have rules, for example, mail is transported
by protocols like SMTP and they are ruled in RFC's like RFC822. One of
those rules is the netiquette, another is line wrapping around column
68-72 (and not 40) which makes still much sense and has not disappeared;
even your text is correcly wrapped, only wrong (top) posted.

People who hate Microsoft Windows use Linux but people who love UNIX use FreeBSD.
