An extra word or two? I actually did more than that and sent a 
polite offlist message to about a "dozen newbies" with full details 
and a link to the mailing list guidelines. There was even a regular
poster who had  top-posted and when he queried offlist I sent him
a link to what he had done and there was no reply. So if someone is
now top-posting after all that, even you may agree it is over the top.
