    Top Post Please.

    I guess one way to solve this is for the original poster to place
    his/her preference for future replies at the very top and then we all
    will honor the request.

    Because the original poster took the time to say something he/she
    thought important or relevant to others and requested common courtesy.

    No, thanks. Please don't top post.

    Please let's keep the sequence of discussions flowing as in a book or
    diary, the most recent entries at the bottom. Yes, trim so that things
    fit on one "page". Follow the Usenet guidelines.

    Thanks,
    David

    What about posting stuff that's on topic? Is that a problem? If people
    stopped posting crap about how to post, and if people posted stuff about
    digital photography, we wouldn't have all the crap that's off topic.

    Where should I place such a response to off-topic crap so that it pleases
    you? Will we all honor my request and post on-topic only? Will _you_ honor
    my request?

    What are you stupid? Do you really expect people to follow that. I post my
    reply on the top of my quoted text so that there is less scrolling through a
    bunch of crap to get to the part one is supposed to be reading. If you don't
    like it too bad!

    Go away.

    C'mon, you honestly expect people to do that? Folks will still do whatever
    they want and there will always be silly debates about it.

    And now John Duh is presuming to tell me (and everyone else) what we're
    supposed to be reading? Dood, if you don't start behaving, I'm gonna
    list all your toys on eBay.

    I don't think he'll have a clue what YOU'RE talking about :)

    Ugh... Usually, I make it a practice to never get involved in threads
    about grammar or whether to top or bottom post. They really aren't
    productive.

    It must be the season or something :) :)

    Possibly it's the vacuum created by the disappearance of a few loons.
    South for the Winter, most likely.
