Go read that thread.  115 messages and counting.  Read *all* of them. Then
think how much longer it would have taken if everybody had top posted.

Second note in the thread - new text is:

RIP to this guy, won't be missed :)

You *really* want to have read the context on that before reading the comment.
If top-posted, it leaves you thinking something entirely different ;)
