Nothing to worry about.  It's mostly a result of people so used to M$ 
Outlook in a business environment that they don't stop to think about 
it.  On short threads it's not a problem, but some Python related 
threads can run into hundreds of entries, all being bounced backwards 
and forwards between umpteen different technologies.  Try reading those 
if they're all top posted, complete nightmare.
