I used to have this available for a 'signature', but, with a few exceptions, it seems to fall on blind eyes these
I put nearly identical text in response to top-posted messages and, if
it was not too difficult, move the top-posted response to the end, before
Of late I have started to get responses from people (not even the person
who top-posted) saying that I should f*** off and that they would post
however they wanted. Very hostile and even threatening.
I even manage to bottom post from my iPod. With cut and paste, it's
really not hard, but I guess it's just beyond the capacities of some
and somehow offensive to others.
