Do you understand the concept of "Top Posting", "Bottom Posting" and
"Inline Posting"? If not, look it up.

The relative installed base of any system is just a statistic. In
reality, the only installation that matters is the one you are
responsible for. In other words, the Russian “Tsar Bomba,” was the
largest bomb ever tested. However, if it had failed to detonate, all it
would have been in reality was a very large paper weight.
