Re: IDE HD, pls help
Their excuse is just nonsense, doing anything else on a
computer they would have no problem and consider the effort
trivial to put their cursor where they want it. They're
looking for some way to justify what they are doing wrong
because they know they need to try to find some defense.
Usenet just isn't email but for that matter if they always
top-post in emails then their emails are going to have low
readability a lot of the time as well.
It's funny that "default position" means anything to them.
I don't recall the last time I needed to use the restroom
and did so in my "default position" instead of moving to a
more appropriate area.

Except Bruce Chambers is a MS shill and actively promotes
the OE posting flaw because MS designed it.
Outlook Express is not a news reader, it is an email client
with only partial news reader functionality tacked on, and
unfortunately correct posting sequence was one of the many
Actually it's a matter of the forum, keeping a consistent
format. If every individual were left to do whatever they
"prefer" without any regard for the conventions, we'd have
far more chaos than just whether people were top or bottom
... and yet he made a special post to address it so he is
equally fanatical about his point of view.
Well yes there is this direct evidence, that Bruce tried to
shrug off but there is a more clear reason in that it is
just as a conversation flows that your response to someone
comes after what they said (unless you have a time
That would be a sign that none of the relevant differences
were being considered. As an example, reformat this post I
just made, putting all the text I wrote together at the top
instead of at the bottom of the portion being replied to.
It will be obvious why one way works far better than the
To those who think sometimes the reply wasn't directly
related to the prior post, they had no reason to keep the
prior text then, probably not even to reply to the post they
did at all instead of correctly bottom-posting to a more
applicable post instead.
If you can't use usenet properly, find a forum where they
prefer the same as you. It's a wide web out there, pretty
silly to stay where you're bucking the whole point of usenet
which was the plain text and bottom-posted style it uses -
opposed to other venues.
