Hey, let's face it. This list has so many messages that I'm really not
interested in most of them. I hit delete just reading the stuff at the
top and stop when I see something interesting to me or something I can
perhaps answer. If the new stuff is at the bottom, most likely I will
skip right by unless the Subject line draws my attention. Like I said,
if it makes the mailing list more manageable or more searchable, that's
cool. But, in my regular e-mail life, I'm a top-posting dude. For the
threads I'm interested in, I've read all the previous messages already
and don't need to scroll through them again.
Enough about that, let's get back to TV watchin' !
