    So you acknowledge that you are a TROLL? Not like there was ever any
    doubt.

    That is because you are supposed to snip out the parts you are not
    responding too [without overly post editting the original]. Definitely,
    bottom posting is easier to follow a conversation as it goes from old to
    new. It is rarely enjoyable to read from the bottom up!

    It is second to last ... with none being last.

    :-)

    OE is a really poor news reader [one which I was unfortunately enough to
    use for quite sometime]. There is a patch that is good for OE [sorry if
    it was posted already].
    http://home.in.tum.de/~jain/software/oe-quotefix/ This make life more
    endurable for those of us forced to read OE posts and it make life
    easier for those that post with OE.

    I agree. Frankly, it's fairly obvious that the folks who designed OE had
    little or no experience with usenet and didn't understand even the basics
    (defaulting to HTML proves that).

    Yep, used it and it works great.

    The very fact that somebody had to spend his time creating a program to fix
    the product of a huge corporation should tell you everything you need to
    know about OE. Seems to me they hired the wrong people and should have
    hired this guy instead http://home.in.tum.de/~jain/software/oe-quotefix/

    Actually, I tend to agree .. if somebody can't snip out the irrellavent
    text, they are lazy and I think that what they have to say must be
    reflected upon in that light.

    You guys are getting rather snotty. I would politely request you take
    your debate out of alt.med.ems. Unless you are the same trolls who have
    been haunting this group for the past many months.

    You also seem to confuse "long" and "irrelevant". They're not the
    same thing.

    No, they merely got sucked in by the troll and created an endless thread
    that is definitely cross-posted inappropriately, which is way worse than top
    or bottom posting and exactly what the troll hoped to achieve.

    Yes, I admit to replying on this thread a couple of times myself, but I also
    pointed out several times that it's a troll thread and off-topic for every
    group it's posted to.

    I for one didn't even see the cross-post, but it is a dead topic, so
    follow-ups have been set :-)
