Subject: RE: [wlug] Top posting

Interestingly enough, I was just doing some goooooooooooooooooogle
research (cheers greig!), and came across a reasonably old netiqette
article which seemed to indicate that both top *and* bottom posting were
acceptable so long as it was clear what you were quoting and you - as
someone else put it - didn't quote an entire email (just enough to get
the idea/topic).  And of course interspersed is fine too.

Most of the stuff ive found seems to indicate this, even an RFC written
by intel in '94. Mostly it seems to by left to the preference of the
user and community you are communicating with.

Cheers...
David

Oh I forgot to include this:
An inforative & humourous guide to writing on the internet (posting to
email lists/usenet) entitled how to write - rude words are included.
