I agree that not STFW and top-posting should be permitted in
ubuntu-users, but they should be discouraged. That way, as people
learn, they can progress. We don't need to burn people at the stake
for top posting or posting slightly OT threads, but they should be
gently reminded that their behaviour is counter-productive.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
