I don't care how much you quote, though I dislike reams and reams of quoted
material. I am referring to your habit of putting the quoted material
before your own post. It's difficult for a blind person to read your
messages when you format this way. One must read line by line and this
takes time and effort. Please take a look at the quoted material below and
you'll see what I mean.

Since this list is composed almost entirely of people who use screen readers
i.e. are blind or visually impaired, it would be a kindness if you could put
your post on top of the quoted material! Thank you!

Brian, could you please refrain from bottom posting on this list?
The short answer is, "No." The longer one is that on active topics it
is almost impossible for anyone to know who anyone else is responding
to, or to what assertion or question someone is responding to, without
something retained for context. That is precisely what the single
line, or part of one, that I retain only when necessary does.
And, although Gene has already said it, what I'm doing is not what
most of the world calls bottom-posting. It's a style that works for
me, and keeps clear exactly what I'm responding to when that's needed.
I don't retain anything when it's not necessary. I have no intention of
changing that.
