Get a browser that supports threading like the majority of us.
Your bottom posting troll was a good distraction for entertainment purposes
only.

While the original topic was coil winding, this part of the thread has
gone off-topic and diverged to the point where what's being discussed is
the efficacy of bottom and in-line posting VS top posting.

Consequently, since my comments address top, in-line, and bottom posting
they are relevant.

Isn't comfort and lack of confusion in communications what we should all
strive for?

I've relocated your post so that it follows my earlier one in order that
you might see how much more natural the flow is, chronologically, using
bottom posting.

Just think (if you can) how much easier someone coming across this post
for the first time would find it to understand, reading it from the top
down instead of having to jump about trying to stitch together seemingly
unrelated pieces of quiltwork.

Perhaps if you weren't using a bwoser [sic] it would look better for
you.  By using a web-based news reader, you're at the mercy of how that
web server reads the headers and such.  Most likely it is your web-based
news service that has mad a mess of things.

I'll stick with the crowd and the logical method following the flavour of
the three browsers I have experienced.

Geeesh. Please don't fuck wit the atural order of your newsreader. It makes
a mess of the thread and confuses the hell out of anybody actually caring
about who posted what. Your bwoser was made to top post with the attachments
at the bottom, keep the headers with the respective text and be easy to use.

Look at the mess you have made of this thread with bottom posting.

The bottom post argument is the favourite troll of the bored and stupid.
This thread is prime example of this.

BTW: Trimming is good but please don't sign your initials over and over.
You're not that important.

  Your NOT sticking with the crowd. Take some time and read some groups,
you will find the convention is bottom posting.
 Regulars don't use browsers for a newsgroup, they use a newsreader.
  If you were right, you would not be getting  flack from the regulars?
Note, I agree with your logic, top posting would be easier for the way
I read the groups. But that is not the convetion. You could drive on the
right* so you so you have a better sense of where the centerline is, but
that's not the convention. If you drive on the right it screws up traffic.
Join the crowd.

It mostly depends on what you want to do.   A few years ago there was
no usenet and no regulars..   Just ordinary people like you and me.
Then a few decided to become the  "net cops" and make rules for
others.
