good suggestions, and for those who use Firefox for web browsing, check 
out this extension for auto-use of BugMeNot:

Off-topic comment:  what's rude is breaking the flow of a discussion 
(note I re-arranged your text so that the flow makes sense, eve if it 
doesn't meet your ideal).  If someone top-posts, then you should follow 
up in-kind.  Going back and forth from one to the other makes for a 
very difficult read.  I personally prefer top-posting - when viewing 
emails from my Treo, for example, the text on top shows up first and 
does not require me to scroll down - and if I've already read the 
original, why would I want to re-read it when viewing the reply anyway?
