David, top posting is considered poor netiquette, and will get you flamed
in most USENET groups. Hope this explains better than I can.

DA

Generally, I avoid top posting because I'm aware that some consider it to be
poor netiquette. However, I've never understood the reason and don't see
anything in the Wikipedia reference to explain it. Personally, I find it is
generally quicker to read top-posted messages, especially when I have to
scroll multiple times to get to the actual post.

I always do.

SOmetimes it is hard to remember which newsgroups want you to top post
and which want you to bottom post, and to me it's as crazy as which way
to insert the toilet paper on the roll -- there are good reasons for
doing both, and each has its proper time.

I don't mind pleasant requests for accommodation, but I do mind the
groups where they label you with unprintable adjectives if you don't
post per their preference.

LOL I just post more to aggravate them, unless it's a group I care about ;-)

Mirjam---
You said just what I was thinking! Since I sprained my wrist a few weeks
ago, it hurts to use the mouse, and as I was complaining to myself about how
the replies were posted, I came upon your request. Thank you!!!

Funny how many posts this thread generated!!

If you were to join a blindness-related list and posted your response
_after_ someone else's message, you'd _very_ quickly get flamed by irate
screen reader users!!!!

And thanks for the link - when I want to respond to several points in an
email or post, I do interweave but start each person's text with their name
and my name and response:

Person: [quoted text]

David: [response]

and so on... This keeps text very clear as to who wrote what, especially
since it can get annoying hearing all those signes repeatedly spoken as
"greater" or "greater greater greater...". *chuckle*

Hi David,

I was intrigued by this and asked friends on another newsgroup. The
best reason they came up with for the convention of bottom-posting was
the unreliability of usenet in terms of message propogation. It is
common to receive messages out of order, for instance, and then if the
message is top-posted and the message to which it is replying is not
there the person reading it has no context and it becomes meaningless.

There is no corresponding argument where mailing lists are concerned I
guess as they are more consistent (perhaps with the exception of yahoo
which can be a bit sporadic) and good at delivering messages in the
correct order.
