IMHO, implementing something like this is a really bad idea, since it
implies that posters can revert to being sloppy about their posting
etiquette, knowing that some technical wizardry will fix it for them.

please -- i'm begging you -- do *not* start this discussion yet again.
i could have sworn that there is now an official edict somewhere on
redhat.com that states clearly that top posting is a *bad* *thing*.
can we please just accept that and not go through this every month?
