Re: [NTLK] Top-Posting (OT)

With new postings I will read from top to bottom. And if I just
dropped in it would seem helpful to read previous content first, but
I read on a regular basis. Since novel and intriguing content are
what I seek, I keep my finger poised on the delete button. I
appreciate not needing to scroll.
Additionally I frequently use the list archives and appreciate top
posting when I am attempting to follow a thread that may continue
over numerous posts.
