That's fine. But if you were asking me questions, and insisted on
top-posting, I'd refuse to respond any further. I'm taking my own time to
help here, and it is in the poster's interest to make things easy. To put
it another way, _not_ top posting is a "necessary accommodation".
And I didn't ask for bottom posting either. Posts should be trimmed to the
minimum needed for context and responses should be included inline as
required. I won't impose that "preference" (sorry, it's not "personal",
it's been an issue of netiquette since the beginning of Usenet) on anybody,
I just retain the right to communicate only with people who behave.
