Will you please reign in you ego and qualify your statement 'it annoys
*SOME* people'. I find all the bitching about top posting to be a
greater distraction than top posting itself!

I find bottom posting to be a real pain as when I look at a new message
it defaults to showing me the top of the message and I then have to
scroll through pages of quoted posts that I have already read just to
read one or two lines stuck at the bottom.

It also doesn't, so once you have worked out how to keep both parties
happy, perhaps 'middle posting' would be a working compromise, you can
get on to curing cancer and bringing peace to the middle east.
I have never left a group because of the trolls.
I have never left a group because of the noobies.
I have left a group because of the constant whining about top posting.
People who whine on about 'top posting' are the sort of people who draft
'clean desk' policies. If you want to whine about top posting then start
alt.whine.top.posting and have fun.
