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


Hi,

Just to add to the mix.  My email client on android always makes me
top-post, adding the original post on the bottom.  It is interesting that
people take the posting style so personally when they have not got enough
information.  It is quite alright to give me (or people who use Androids)
special dispensation, if you want to, but that is not the point.  What gives
anybody the right to rag about others' correspondence style, really?  These
are people. not machines.  The reader is unlikely to hard crash when
presented with an unexpected top post, or hang until reboot when presented
with the awful "interspersed" answer style.

Personally, I would rather see a person's answer at the top of the post, and
if I am unsure of the context, I can read the (usually un-pruned) previous
message string below.

Happy Monday,
Wolf
