         You just have to remember that some people take ANY 
suggestion or criticism as a flame, regardless of how it was originally meant.

         I don't care for top-posting, either.  Most of the messages 
on an email list are multiple-paragraph, and when somebody gives a 
top-post reply, it can be REALLY confusing trying to figure out just 
which paragraph the reply concerns.  In my opinion, trimming and 
bottom posting is better, and another possibility is interspersing 
multiple replies in the quoted text.

         Changing the subject line is another GREAT improvement!  <G>

         BTW, <G> indicates a grin, like a smiley, meaning let's all 
laugh at this...
