Well, what can I say? Thanks for the encouragement !!

I dream of a world where all e-mail lists use this software to transparently 
convert all messages to bottom-posted... People type whichever way they like, 
the resulting message gets to be bottom-posted... People see everyone else 
bottom-post, even their own e-mail gets converted... The top2bottom idea gets 
integrated into sendmail, postfix, qmail, etc., to automatically make every 
possible message bottom-post... Even M$ Outlook office secretaries start 

Ummm, ok, maybe this last thing is a bit too unrealistic. ;-)

But anyway, the revolution is about to start !! The days of top-posters are 
numbered... :-))

Cheers, :-)
