I must say that I *am* surprised that LO haven't the technical/political
ability/tenacity to properly post information regarding this issue in
the same manner as the links provided (OOo, Mozilla, Ubuntu, et al).

I have published a comprehensive Mailing List Netiquette, which should 
satisfy your needs.

Thanks!

Of course, a mailing list netiquette is just a reference document, and 
we cannot kill people who ignore it (the majority of users ignore the 
simple existence of the netiquette).


Fully agree. And the intent of my OP was never to turn away posters that
top post "Even if the final consensus is to only top post...
at least will help with consistancy on this (users), and the other LO
lists." but instead to have a page that users can be 'politely' pointed
to and 'asked' to abide by list standards.

With regard to concerns about top/interspersed/bottom posting on the
accessibility list; I think that the question should be asked there. If
that list prefers top-posting for accessibility reasons then that point
can be added into the http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette.
  Ironically in the past I've purposely top-posted when addressing a
poster that I knew was blind & the poster informed me that it was easier
for him to have the posts interspersed with proper trimming. Other
accessibility lists seem to go either way, so I do not know the correct
answer regarding this issue. Again, perhaps the best would be to ask on
the LO accessibility list and then adopt whichever preference is shown
there.

Thanks again & I *very* much appreciate your time & effort in doing this.
