Please return the favor then and don't turn mine around. I clearly said the
comment was not directed at you personally (I don't even know what your
stance on top posting is!) it was directed at the overall thread.  I only
said it here because you summarize the entire point I have been attempting
to make about top posting when you said "one size does not fit all" (in
reference to something other then top posting) so it was a good place to
summarize my main point.
