Re: Top Posting Question

Totally true. Before the days when The Internet became as ubiquitous as it is now, I would post to a mail network called Fidonet. This was carried around the world by amateurs, primarily using dial-up modems and often very slow modems < 2400bps at their own expense. Not trimming replies, top posting, and huge sigs would soon get you banned because of the unnecessary expense incurred. The modem is long gone but the habit has remained! :)
