This list has rules everyone is supposed to follow. Such kind of rules
are commonly known in the internet as "netiquette". About every
mailing list has such rules even if they aren't always written down
explicitly, and you can find the version for this mailing list at the
following url: http://www.rockbox.org/mail/etiquette.html Btw, that
text also gets mailed to the list from time to time so you should be
aware of the rules.

It doesn't matter if the original poster of a thread was following
that guidelines or not, if you are replying you are supposed to follow
them. They explicitly state not to use top posting, and personally I
find it quite rude to first not follow the etiquette of this list and
then calling someone who tells you to follow the rules being "anal".
