for what it's worth, i can't bear top-posting, and i've always appreciated
paul's attempts to keep the list in-line with policy. i've not thought
them rude or draconian, and my impression is that when things have got
heated it's been the response of the person corrected, or bystanders who
don't like the policy, that's escalated matters. that's just my standing
impression, though, not a well-researched datum.

if i haven't posted much of recent times, that's mostly because rockbox is
rock-solid and does what i want it to, so as regards personal media
players, i'm free; my main efforts are now focussed on freeing up other
devices i need to use (openmoko).
