or if you subscribe to more than one list
or if your job is more than following mailling lists
or if the lifetime of the thread is mor than one week
or if you have a bad memory
or if you try to search the archives
or if a thread mixes top-posting with inline posting

Thats why you cut everything but the relevant text to get a clue what 
the thread is about.

If a posting is only meant for those who are actively involved and if 
there is no need to archive the thread, then it might be considered if 
it is better to post outside a public mailing-list.

Generyall, life never gets better than what you make it to youreself.

Either way, but being consequent is to be preferred. Either we all 
top-post or we all inline-post.
