Got a chuckle from your handle. Used that for a password.

I just always got a kick out of Jr. Samples playing the used car salesman on
Hee Haw and that infamous 5 digit phone number BR549.

Welcome aboard! It is always good to have someone in the group with a
sense of humor. Others have pointed out to you that the proper place to
test is a test group (which is unnecessary now because you know it's
working!), but here are some additional links that will help you get
the most out of Usenet:

You should read some of those links, I'm sure one would cover replying
correctly to a post. I didn't post the test post, Hilton Cast did.

I think your reply was meant for BR549. I didn't even comment on your
top post.

Answer: because it makes posts illogical

Question: Why is it not good to top-post?


See?

No, but I also don't reread what I've already read every time I turn the
page.

Bottom posting makes sense if you only read one post containing an entire
thread (historical). It does not make sense if you read each post
individually as they occur (real time). Which side of the debate you're on
depends on how you like to peruse usenet, neither side is any more "right"
than the other, though it's mostly the "left" that worry about things that
don't really matter <g>.

Me, I top post, bottom post, post in the middle - whatever suits me at that
given moment in time and seems appropriate to answer the question. I don't
care about posting protocol any more than I'd wear a three piece suit and
hat to work like my predecessors.

Answer: because it's not logical


Question: Why is top-posting not a good idea?
