This should not have ever been turned into what is easier for some one who
is blind or some one who is sighted. Rules are rules. The list rules
clearly state that top posting is not allowed. I have no idea why all of
our inboxes have been filled with message after message debating this topic.
There is no debate. This list requires its users not to top post.

It should not matter if you are blind or sighted. It should not matter what
is easier for one person or harder for another. It is the rules of the
list. if some one does not like the rules of this list, then they reserve
the right to leave at any time.

I know my message is only continuing this thread, but I just can't sit back
any longer. I am tired of seeing people fight back and forth about a
pointless topic. Lets all move forward and keep rockbox alive.
