Noobishness can be tolerated for a "reasonable" time,
especially when the "noob" actively seeks to improve his
skills, as you are doing, so kudos to you.

The next skill to learn, after NOT top posting, is the art
of trimming quotations to the most relevant bits. You'll
have to use your own judgment for most quoted text, however,
if nothing else, be sure to remove any links to the quoted
persons web site or blog, and any "famous quotes". 

Some folks even have software that "blabs" about how great a
job it is doing protecting the posters computer (like we
really care!), so if you see any taglines that mention "this
is a virus free message" (oh thanks, now i can sleep at
night!), or some pretentious line about "this was sent from
my i-phone" -- send that crap to the bitbucket!
