I personally prefer top posting and actuallly don't care either way because
if the topcis interesting I will read it, but for the fear of being burned I
vow to bottom post for now on. I guess I didn't realize it was such a big
problem. I always thought it was more of a problem with posters leaving out
valuable information in more of a rant style question and those long
signatures that don't get deleted when people reply. This thread has IMS
written all over it. :)
