Are you showing your age?

Top-posting is an office environment habit encouraged by m$ apps.

E-mail [n]etiquette began many years ago, long before Gates bought dos
and spewed windoz and the mickey$oft apps broke every rule that was in

Trimming and bottom-posting and ask-answer-ask-answer was required and
non-conformers where severly chastised publicly. When aol first
started, the users that they brought were consider the scourge of the
net, a laughing stock.
