I wanted to send it off-list, but perhaps it's better to send it to the
list:

All Linux and FreeBSD mailing lists expect bottom posting.

*buntu lists are exceptions, here you are free even to post HTML and to
break many other rules. This has advantages and drawbacks, however, the
common rules for mailing lists are valid for all lists, also for *buntu
lists. *buntu lists are just more tolerant, if somebody fails to do the
right thing.
