What for? Then I have to scroll all the way back to the top of the
post.

Try reading and don't trim text to support your falacies

    Why is it that top posters think the alternative is bottom
posting and in either case quoting the whole original. Doesn't anyone read
RFCs anymore ?


    The idea is to quote enough material and only that much to
establish context and reply beneath the quted material in interleaved
style. There is no need to scroll to the bottom of the post.


    Quoting the entire message and putting a response at either end is
stupid. The normal USENET convention predates browsers by more than a
decade.

 Welcome to the 90s. Which text was yours now and why isn't it with
your header identifying it?
...and I did not post all that text regardless of what your post said.

Did you know that Usenet convention say that more than 3 lines of
signature is considered rude and spamming or advertising?

I personally find that most people disregard bottom posts at all if
they are long and not really hot topics.

Why is it that top posters think the alternative is bottom
posting and in either case quoting the whole original. Doesn't anyone
read
RFCs anymore ?

The effort is too high to scroll to the bottom of the post and then
back up to find the first text that isn't indented and has a ID/header
of the poster somewhere at the top end of the post.

The idea is to quote enough material and only that much to
establish context and reply beneath the quted material in interleaved
style. There is no need to scroll to the bottom of the post.

What a stupid system bottom posting was before threading browsers.

Quoting the entire message and putting a response at either end is
stupid. The normal USENET convention predates browsers by more than a
decade.

    Hard to tell some moron stripped the conventional quote marks
while leaving the attributions.


    4 lines - read the RFCs.

 LOL. Best of luck.

Let's face it there are no Usenet rules and never was any.

Reality prevails whether you like it or not.
