    Speaking of organs.....did you hear about the nun that chased the priest
    around the church? She finally caught him by the organ.

    I (usually) bottom post, and even rearrange top posts when I reply to them
    (cleaning up extraneous crap while I'm at it), but I won't chastise or
    argue with anybody about it in any group other than alt.fan.dave_barry
    (where the only person who is allowed to top-post is The D*ve's personal
    assistant, judi smith).

    As explanation, not argument, I will say that bottom-posting gives the
    reader a chance to review that which is being replied to, before getting to
    the actual reply. Sometimes this is critical to what I am saying.

    I freely admit that when you are blasting through a bunch of
    several-day-old posts, as I am doing right now, this is not as important.
    Otoh, when you are reading a reply to something that was written several
    days ago, as you are now, the reminder is certainly helpful. It is even
    more helpful when someone replies to a post that is a month or more old,
    which I have seen happen in this group (alt.cellular.verizon is where I'm
    reading this thread).

    Bottom-posting also works better when inserting replies to individual parts
    of the previous post(s).

    Nor to the fundamentals of staying in one tense while writing.

    Nor to basic grammar, apparently.
