> Can you give an example where it is better to top-post?
Yes, I can.
Whether or not I will or not is a different matter, considering that
I've already gone to significant length to explain in great detail the
circumstances in which top-posting is better, as well as
acknowledging, that there are circumstances where bottom-posting is
What the heck: Top posting is better when you want to send a single
coherent message(thanks Dennis), but want to leave the original(the
ENTIRE UNEDITED original) available to the recipient for
reference(without the recpient having to search through his
previously(possibly deleted) mails.
I'm getting sick of people trying to explain to me why top-posting is
a bad thing[tm], using their Answer, Question, or cart before horse
analogy. To quote one of the great heros of our time "Just because I
don't care doesn't mean I don't understand."
