Go to the medical boards sometime.
Arthritis, chronic pain, cancer, etc.
See if your >99% observation applies.
When economy of movement, as well
as a small group that knows what has
come before, top posting is most practical.

Hmm, now that I think of it, there is an
enormous number of specific-interest
groups, more being formed all the time.
That would suggest top posting being
more appropriate, along with ignoring
self-appointed net-cops that want to try
to force a practice they know to be
archaic and clumsy.

Unbelievable. I didn't have to mouse scroll down and then back up again to
see if I missed anything...

and look! You header, and JF's is with your text and the one before it are
all in order.

I have seen many articles on top posting and it seems it will be the way of
the future once people get more modern Usenet browsers that can actually not
mix up the posting. Funny how these obstinates can use top posting everyday
for business email and then totally switch when posting in a forum like
Usenet.

I have used a few different newsgroup browsers and they all position the
curser at the top. There are always special keystrokes to get to the bottom
but then you have to backtrack to find the top of the entry. Even the
signatures lines are handled by deleting them. So many groups use this
method now with the exception of a few old farts from the outdated IRC...LOL

This should have them cringing in their boots. I used the words "browser",
"forum" and a few others that the "everbody has to be like me" trolls like
to cling onto...LOL

Have a good one.

My position and that of probably >>99% of USENET is that bottom and
in-line posting is much more efficacious and considerate to readers than
top posting, so your disagreeing with that position is tantamount to
your declaring "Your format is wrong", which hoists you on your own
petard and brands _you_ as the lazy troll losing the argument.

Exactly, so why would you start at the bottom with your post?

Bottom posting arguments and other general stupidity is killing it.

Because that's how one reads, from the beginning of a story to the end.
Each post is like a conversation in a novel. Someone coming late to a
thread can follow the whole conversation from the start and be up to
speed by what has transpired before.

Usenet is dead because most ISP's no longer offer it for free, and
technology has moved on with new shiny toys that take no brains at all
to use.
