Re: [tdf-discuss] Top Posting... Can we have an LO Mailing List Guidelines Page?


Yeah! A man without unnecessary limitations.
I believe cropping is a solution to the problem.
I understand, but dislike being forced to read
the whole thread. There is an argument for
reading the "whole thing" but I believe that
it does not need to be dogma.

regards,
Richard.

The links do not lead me to assume that top posting is expected. If the
documentation group desires bottom posting only, the user should be informed
when the register. Even then, I expect that most people will miss it.
Expecting someone to follow a link and then follow another link seems a wee
bit unlikely.

Bottom posting is great when a message is not read in context of the other
messages. When I read threaded messages, it is annoying to wade through the
message history before I arrive at the content of interest. I might prefer,
therefore, that people be prodded into seriously shortening content from all
previous posters to only contain the portions relevant to their reply.
