The whole rfc thing on top/bottom posting is geek fodder. It's the sort of 
argument people who dont wash and use tcl/tk think is righteous. It's why I 
have a gun in my car and I choose my friends carefully. There is more to life 
than being a zealous geek who maligns people who top/bottom post. We live in a 
world where its good to talk regardless of top/bottom. Life's too short - whats 
the alternative ? We stop responding to dev issues or support issues and let 
people drown and go use something else.

Common sense says dont shove RFC and conformity down other peoples throats or 
you drive them away.

Instead be nice to people and remember we're all here because we choose to - 
not because we have to be. Keep it a nice safe place and we all smile. No need 
for angst and geekdom.
