    No, LOL. Actually I stated just the opposite of what I intended too. I meant to say:
    On the other hand if I need help and I get it from someone who uses "TOP POSTING"
    I'm gonna thank them:)

    I do agree though that top posting is silly. It makes no more sense than writing/reading
    right to left. It's backwards plain and simple. If you wanted to read a book and had two
    options: one that was wriiten top down and one that was written bottom up, which would you
    read?

    To a point you made earlier, I also agree if the first reply is top posted, you may as well
    continue that way as mixed top/bottom posting is even worse on a thread that goes to any
    length.

    OTOH, blogs are now top-posted in general...

    OTOOH, I think most blogs are silly, too.

    OTOOOH, it does make for more easily getting to the latest info; not silly
    at all!
