A bit older than that. It started with the OLD arpa NET from the DOD. To
allow the Universities and US Gov to interchange. It was done via modems
and I remember that we could do all the news groups on a 1200 Baud Modem.
That was the mid to late 70's. So that would be 3 decades. And it was
extremely bad ediquite to top post. I do not read a book from back to
front. So why would I do mail lists back to front. Just because MS can
not follow standards we have to put up with an entire un-educated MS
indoctrunated group that blindly follow MS and breaks the standards.

Please do not top post. It makes it hard to follow what is being said.
