Yes, top posting is unnecessary and is *usually* done by those who are lazy
and inconsiderate.  Bottom posting and trimming quoted text appropriately
are standard good etiquette guidelines for all mailing lists and have been
since almost the dawn of the Internet.

Every mailing list message includes an appended signature to a wiki article
about mailing list etiquette.

It'll be at the bottom of this message.  It's this link:


Top posting and unnecessary quoting are very annoying.  Trim quoted text
appropriately to give enough context in replies and no more!

Cheers, Ian
