OK, for once and for all  I am going to go back to bottom posting.  I 
belong to a lot of lists and some of them are going to give me a hard 
time over bottom posting.I will quit them. There is no way I will ever 
remember which lists are bottom posted and which are top posted.  So 
again I say, I wish the problem would just go away. Some lists say it 
makes archiving easier and to me in these days of computers where you 
press a button and the list can be upside down or right side up this 
seems to me, not a valid argument.  What ever makes reading the posts 
easier makes the most sense. I have never liked top posting but did it 
because of it being that was the way certain lists wanted it.   I guess 
it boils down to which lists are too much trouble to be on? Now I have a 
habit to break.
