OTOH - Inline posting is where it's at. You post where your
comments fit the best. For that, I prefer full cursor control.
Even NewsWatcher (my fav app on my wife's Mac) doesn't pop to the
bottom. If it did, I'd have to cursor up to put in my "signature" "Howdy!"
Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
Look at the OE way as an encouragement to cut out stuff that doesn't
really apply to your reply ...
