Re: Cut your tails

Hello again!

Since Bob added a pet peeve to Jude’s request to trim tails … I have several 
around the issue of trimming tails:

People who trim waaaay too much of the tail or worse trim all of it or start a 
new thread instead of reply to the thread in progress.

And, Bob, I’m not sure my mail program allows “bottom posting” — I’ll check it 
out.  Frankly I like the most recent post to be at the top.  You can always 
read from the bottom up …  Maybe we should have some standard way of posting.  
Otherwise some emails will read bottom up and others top down.  That would make 
me dizzy …
