I only added that to the footer for lfs-support, not blfs-support. It's
there because new users don't appear to know what is considered polite
on these lists.
Sometimes I add it on other lists to specific users.
Top posting is OK for one-to-one communications, but not appropriate for
mailing lists where there can be many posters to a thread.
Another item I wish more posters would do is trim their messages to the
relevant portions of the parent message.
