I don't think the people who top-post or quote the entire message are doing it
out of disrespect. They just have never been exposed to the traditional style.
The main reason I posted this was to demonstrate that there's really no reason
to quote the original message. My response was only to this one point and not
the longer previous point. I actually think this is a more important point to
get across than simply "don't top post" which just seems to generate lots of
"bottom posts" that are just as bad.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's RemoteDBA services!
