When I posted the message, I didn't realize that someone would take that act of kindness in any negative way, so I'm surprised. Saab Guy - I must say I'm a little torn; can't decide if you're trying to annoy people or genuinely don't understand. I will give you the benefit of the doubt, and give it one last shot. All communication media have their conventions. These conventions are necessary in order to allow us to make easy use of these media. Take a pub for example. A pub (that's a bar, a drinking hole etc.) has its conventions. For instance, you don't burst in the door shouting, you don't dance on the bar naked, etc. If you don't follow these conventions, you are likely to be asked to leave the pub, or at the very least you will receive a very cold response from the regulars. Usenet has its own conventions. There are many online documents that outline these conventions, such as: <http://www.newsreaders.com/guide/netiquette.html> <http://www.use-net.ch/netiquette_engl.html> The convention in question is top-posting. This is when you write your reply to a post, quoting the original post below your reply. It makes threads very difficult to follow, and is therefore frowned upon. Does this make sense? -- Grunff
