Which is the crux of the problem: if you're too lazy to snip then you're
more likely to top-post because your reply will get lost at the bottom after
a few emails have been exchanged.

This is also why (laziness) people still use Outlook and IE7 :-)


I'm with David Mintz, on this one and, at best, this posting argument
strikes me as a preference, rather than an absolute. Granted, it may be a
community preference here, and if so, should be heeded, but it seems silly
to argue in terms of "right" and "wrong."

Reasonable people may also differ on how much context or content is

I notice an off-thread subject line here, too. Should this be scolded, too?
