Wow... This thread deviated from the original topic a bit, didn't it.

My 2p worth, though - I don't have an issue with the @ style reply, infact I kind of find it better if you respond to multiple people in the same mail.

The top post/bottom post I understand, to keep the flow of the thread easier to read, and so make a conscious effort to bottom post (iPhone top posts for some reason).

Thanks and Regards,

Liam Gallear
