It has to be a first time for everything! ;)

Maybe it's because I'm a "hard core" e-mailer who has been doing this since the early Nineties? Oh well, I will have to take a lot of heat from colleagues now using my BB. I will try and explain that I'm not doing it on purpose. Personally I do not have a strong opinion on this, but a lot of people I correspond with do.

Some input on the issue here:

http://www.alexking.org/blog/2004/08/09/top-posting/

Alex has a balanced response to someone asking about why top-posting is such a no-no.

Still, I do not understand why the BB e-mail editor has to prevent you from editing in the original e-mail. It didn't even occur to me it wasn't possible, so I kept trying to find out how. Now I know why I didn't succeed!
