Top posting means placing your response ahead of the text to
which you're responding. In int comp.lang.c forum, the practice
is to place your response following the text to which you're
responding - as I have here.

It's also considerate to trim (snip) as much as seems reasonable
from the post to which you're responding.

I agree, but....

I would rather have a top post than have to scroll down 20 or 30 pages
before I find the one line new comment. I usually won't go more than 3 or 4
pages down. Yes, I don't like top posting, but if I never see the new
text, what is the point of posting at all?

If I find someone consistently posting one line at the end of 20-30
pages, then I killfile them as persistently brainless fools.

agreed., thats what snipping is for

none at all, for people who post "mee tooo" posts after 20 odd pages
of text.

For people who sensibly snip, plenty.
