Subject Re: I hate top posting
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 14:14:25 GMT

  I used to do in-line posting a lot; but stopped for a few reasons.  
Outlook seems to be designed for "top posting" and makes it hard to do 
in-line or bottom posting.  The end result is that every corporate 
client I have does top posting and some get confused w/ in-line 
posting.  Often the in-line posts are never read.  The second is that 
the Adobe pre-release forums remove all the formatting and quoting, 
making in-line posting just a confused mess.

  But, in this case I don't care either way.  I had just accepted that 
in-line posting had gone the way of the Dodo bird.

of importance, surely?
