    Odd because I thought I'd answered you, though the riddles should have
    given the game away and a UK ISP would have made it immediately obvious.
    when you're from and in UK it helps to subscribe to a UK ISP. If you
    were thinking of New York city then Nassau county might qualify as east
    of NY though East of New York State is the Atlantic Ocean and then
    either Greenland or the UK depending upon which route you take.

    really?

    what's your definition of 'own'?

    Why don't you post examples of your work?

    Why don't you ever answer questions?

    Is there ANY point to your life whatsoever, except light, brainless,
    entertainment (and all of us appreciate a bit of that every now and
    then)...?

  6. I replied to the original post, if that's what "top-posting" means.

    And there aren't really a whole lot of ideas to break up here :)

    Me as in you (doug greenwald), or as in "me" the acidic twerp obsessed
    with trolling on about how film is the only and best medium to use?

    At least I don't top-post.

    A: It destroys the logical flow of ideas in a thread.
    Q: What's wrong with top-posting?

    Top posting is typing your reply at the top of the page, instead of the bottom.

    Another no-no on usenet is HTML posting - your last post was in HTML format.
    Some newsreaders will only see:

    <DIV><FONT face=3DVerdana size=3D2>

  9. Umm - I've been on USENET since forever - there really aren't any enforceable "rules" to the mess. It was designed to be self-moderating chaos. It seems to work better in this group than in a lot of groups I've read over the years.

    If I'm only gonna see one or two lines of new message in a post, I'd rather see it at the top than have to scroll through several pages of previous message to see the two lines of new message. Another supposed no-no is not trimming the previous message(s) to only that which you are responding to, which I rarely see happening.

    HTML aware news clients are prevalent enough now that posting in HTML is a fairly safe bet. I was a late adopter of an HTML aware news client and my original (and still active) email address I read with a text-only client, so I understand the risk I'm takin' here.
