agreed, so even those on the list for a long time likely have no clue 
about it, or, only go to it, when they want to try force an opinion on
someone :)

moot point, its laziness, its laziness to bottom post, its laziness to not 
trim irrelevant parts and quote inline, but I don't cry about it, life goes 
on, what pisses me off is, as I've mentioned in other posts those that 
think they have authority, but reality says otherwise.

neither do bottom posters.

i agree, it was only 2 years ago I removed the regex filtering on my MTA 
with html, but this is the 21st century now, so long as people quote and 
reflect who said what, I don't mind so much, i don't bitch about it, if I 
cant figure out who said what I just move on, unless there html reply 
infers i said something i did not (which reminds me, someone is rather 
noticeable, by his absence around here lately, hope all is well with him)
