Default please don't top-post (was: shell access behind a trasparent proxy http only)


I normally reply to each person doing it and keep such recommendation
quiet. But as it's becoming recurring problem that many ignore of fail
to understand, I have to write it for everyone. This isn't your average
marketing person that you are addressing a mail here, but a debian-*
list with other IT persons. Respect others and do not top post: it's
unreadable if you do.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?

Thanks for considering the above,

Thomas Goirand (zigo)
