[ale] OT: top-posting

I prefer to top post and see top posts.
Typically if I've been following the thread I really don't want to have
to scroll through what I've already seen to see the responses.
Also I'm too lazy to bother to scroll through to bottom to post just
because some people are annoyed by it. It's a matter of opinion rather
than an absolute despite how some people would like to portray it.
For those who do bottom post or intermingle post I'll generally read it
the way they sent it.
As pointed out in a thread last year though NOT top posting has
sometimes undesirable side effects like making signatures look as if
they are the point of the post because they DO appear at the top.

I like the intermingle method.. I top post to my M$ Lookout users.. they
expect it. I think people demand too much from users.. you NEED to do it
WAY.. blah...blah.. If there was only ONE WAY to do it, no problem.
there is always a different way to skin a cat, I find the method that
me, and I use it. I personally don't care what method YOU
floats yer boat:)
