A someone else pointed out, yes, you are free to post as you
will, /BUT/ many of the best helpers here will not see your posts if
you top post and/or do not snip.  That is /their/ prerogative and there is nothing that /you/ can do about /that/.  If you wish to enjoy
the best advice on this list then you should also follow the very best
advice /from/ this list.
