[access-uk] Re: Top Replying

Top replying means you can follow a conversation at any point in the
discussion rather than having to chase out older emails.that you may
have deleted anyway. I think it's a more user friendly way of doing it
and probably will mean you'll get a greater response to any questions
you pose here.

Sometimes emails that have had their history deleted are quite
enfuriating.

Greetings,

I am somewhat bemused by the way email programs I have so far
experienced, work regarding how they process posts being sent when the
one being replied to is left.

In general, I tend to remove the posts to which I am replying, for in
most cases, I have read a thread and hence each post in turn so don't
really want to re-read again.  Of course, top replying makes this much
more simple.

If, as seems the case on most non-vi lists, such as on the UK Radio list
(I do not mean the UK Radio Listeners list run by Clive Lever) and also
on the TNAUK group, top-replying is discouraged but is not illegal!
why, then, do all the email clients I've seen place the editting cursor
**above** the post to which a reply is being generated?  Surely, this is
seen by the software developers of such clients as being the most
natural way to use them.  

Just a few thoughts as I read through the rather ancient thread of
February last year.

England.

One of these days I may even get onto Facebook, twitter or skype, so you
can't escape from me forever!!
