You're singing my tune John.
I've been posting to Usenet for 12 years now and I proudly don't
follow netiquette faithfully (as has been seen).
I know what 'netiquette' is, and I've seen how some people that push
the heck out of it to the point they often fail good 'netiquette'
My view is that the most important netiquette of all is not to be rude
your fellow posters. Frankly, it's true that top-posting can be viewed
as an easier way to read a post. I used to post the other way that the
browbeaters are indicating they want to see, but it's more
There's no reason I have to hit every point of their posts when I reply.
