RE: [PBML] Soapbox (was Saving the content of a URL)
- don't knock top posting..
I get 500 emails a day from linux lists I help out on, and most often I want
to read them quickly..
using the ppreview window to read the post is great if you don't have to
scroll down to read..
people are divided on wether or not top posting is better or not on all the
lists I am on..
but being able to read the last post at the start is really handy... then if
I don't understand what
that email was in response to, I can scroll down, but if I already know,
then I don't have to..
just a thought, I did give top posting alot of thought before I started
I do admit that I hate non descriptive subjects, (and I have been quilty of
it myself many times when I forgot to
put something useful in there myself.)

hold on to it.
Let's ignore the mails with nondescriptive subjects.
Let's only send a reply like "Your post has been ignored. Use
If we do this all the time, they WILL learn.
Actualy ... I intentionaly do so ... every time I see a post without a
reasonable subject I delete it. If you did not take time to think up a
subject you don't deserve my help [FULLSTOP]

There is a reason for living. There must be. I've seen it somewhere.
It's just that in the mess on my table ... and in my brain.
I can't find it.
