I've heard a lot of areas claim this. Midwest (Wisconson), MidAtlantic
(Va), New England (Maine), even Florida in the summer time.
I think it's a 'universal truth', like "everyone talks about the weather,
Cleveland update: its been an unusually mild winter so far (so the residents
say). it was quite mild there today. when i stopped at the Pennsylvania
state line it was fridged. when i got back to central New York there is snow
on the ground.

But, ... , see? ... WHO is the moron you are replying to? Is it I,

And, you are right that editing replys is always important, but taking
out EVERYTHING can make it imposible to follow the thread sometimes.

No one has ever explained "nitpicking" in any way that makes any
sense. It' just one of the weapons used in verbal assault.
Top-posting is a convenience for users, who don't want to have to
scroll down. If you think that's just a minor thing, you haven't read
a group with hundreds of new (bottom-posted) replies every time.
Actually, I prefer posting in the appropriate places (with at least
SOME of the reply in the first screenful). However, in a comparison of
posting at the top and all at the bottom, all it the top is much
preferable. This is based on actual experience, not mindless following
of (non-justified) rules.
If you trim the replies correctly, though, that isn't a problem.
It's best to bottom post to keep the events in order, but also trim out what's
too old to be directly relevant.
If some folks bottom post, and some top post, the quoted conversation loses
coherence. So there has to be some kind of convention. Like it not, the
convention is to bottom post and trim the quoted lines.

It "always" is! <g>
Here is what I do Phil. I use the View: Hide Read Messages (which is what I
suspect you are doing, although it might carry a different naming). If I
wish to go back into an already read part of the thread I simply change the
view to Show All Messages. Easy as cake.
Hoping this might help,
(who wishes that top posting was the norm in _these_ NGs as it makes the
most sense to me)
