And I'd like to add to mirjam's request: could you please put your responses
at the _top_ of your replies - I use a screen reader to read me what's in
text on-screen, so listening to all those repeated messages... well, I end
up simply deleting messages with the same subject line without having read
most of them for this reason.

Thanks

David

Sometimes that is difficult to do if you are addressing several points
in a post.

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

If top-posting is considered poor netiquette, which I agree, it is, but
it is helpful to someone using a text reader, then perhaps netiquette
needs to be adjusted to meet the needs of differently abled readers.

Good point Nickie......I sub to several groups and pretty much go with the
flow....some don't care how you post, others are diehard bottom posters
only. So I usually lurk for a while and see what the norm is for a new
group. I noticed that most private news servers where the posters are
afraid of Usenet Groups are top posters.

It's not just poor netiquette it makes for difficult reading and replying.
