> Flowed text and top-posting have become the norm in mainstream email

So have a lot of other horrible things, such as spam.  Popularity,
especially mainstream popularity, is no measure of goodness, or we
should all immediately switch to Windows on peecees.

I have no problem with flowed text - when done according to the spec, a
spec which exists for good reason.  As for top-posting, I've already
written about why I consider most instances of it arrogant rudeness
(see my blah post at and have
seen no reason to change that opinion.
