No annoyance but with properly trimmed and ">" or ">>" indented replies
it is so much easier to follow on text readers (see above in first
para). Also level of quoting indicates the turns of conversation /

Personally having seen many lists and participated, I found advice of
bottom posting, received from old timers myself, more conducive even if
some one jumps in late.

I appreciate concerns of Hartley. As I said in my original post it was
more of observation and not a high ground position!!
