Just to show you how flexible I am, here is a bottom post.
Though I hate responding to attackers such as you, I will make an example
out of you anyways. Of course, people like you will not admit that I am
making a contribution because you would like to get it free and then destroy
the contributor anyways and take the credit elsewhere (?)
If you have read previous posts, you will see that top posting is a far
superior form of effective, precise, short communication. If you need any
context, all you need is to snip a line or two from the older material and
put it alongwith your writing. THAT IS ALL IT TAKES TO GET CONTEXT
INFORMATION INTO IT !
The proof of the hollowness of the complainers can be found in the fact that
they are not complaining about the absolute gobledy-gook that results from
people mangling previous material and inserting their comments in between
the lines ! That, in my opinion is the absolute GHASTLY way of
communicating. It seems to be practised almost deliberately in order to have
new software that will color-code different levels of indentation to make it
more readable. That is definitely the LAZIEST and CRUDEST ways of
communicating using this wonderful/powerful medium that we have today !
