I never meant to infer that I sought a general consensus of list
members before I'd accept the list standard for bottom posting. You
misunderstood the sentence that you quoted, it was only an attempt to
explain why I top-posted and my experiences with top and bottom
posting on various lists. Your demeanor to this point however has
been far from cordial towards me, a subscriber on-board for less than
a day! I understand yours is a volunteer effort, but please keep in
mind that this between people that are sharing an experience that is
meant for PLEASURE, not a pursuit of work-place-grind or academic
challenge and competition.
