It's in the mouse. Just click on the bottom of the post, trim whatever
is annoying and start typing. Be glad you're not on a Selectric, licking
stamps, stuffing envelopes and waiting 1/2 month for a reply. This
slight tad of inconvenience doesn't mean one is *doomed* to top-posting.
I never noticed the selections absence. I just looked, you're right,
it's not there. No prob. 

What probably happened was that too many wankers ragged on the Evolution
team over the selections not intuiting exactly what the luser wanted, so
they predictably jerked it out by the roots.  :) Ric
