Some people don't know how to conduct themselves on usenet
and mailing lists. Despite the mailing list guidelines
being crystal clear about no html posting and not top-posting
we have people still doing so. People still use text-readers to
access the mailing list so you could be denying access to these
people by flouting the mailing list guidelines.
This is an example of top-posting
There are legitimate newbies who top-post because they know no
different and can acquaint themselves with the mailing list guidelines
Maybe the guidelines can updated to say trimming of emails as well and
maybe link to examples on Wikipedia of top-posting and bottom-posting.
Newbies aside, there are guys still top-posting who have ignored polite
offlist messages not to top-post. Its not the time to be nannying people
over how to behave on mailing list.
