I have to concur, thankfully this list remains faithful to the bottom or
middle post rules. I'm on several other lists for projects that are
cross-platform and for all of the Window's users top posting, they are
pure gibberish. Especially when trying to search through them looking to
see if an issue I have has already been resolved. I hazard a guess that
explains why so many issues keep getting re-posted and re-posted and
re-posted. It's just intellectually lazy. Ric
