Aamir and others:
The custom on Linux newsgroups requires bottom posting. That means, when
we answer a post, we put our answer at the bottom.
This may seem counter intuitive, but it's really the best way to follow
threads. It's also the custom and so we respect it.
It's like driving on the correct side of the road.
