It's sad to think that a solution found for your other lists should be 
applied to every list you participate in - without any discussion on the 
subject.  Some email clients do not allow bottom posting (my BlackBerry 
does not).  Soon another "rule" will be imposed that the amount of "new" 
content in an email be more than the "quoted" portion; or that all 
"signatures" be removed before reply.  It's my opinion that email is 
perhaps the wrong tool for discussions like those happening on this list 
at the moment.  The problem is; no better tool presents itself at the 
moment.  I think that as long as we are using the wrong tool for the 
job; we should avoid adding more "rules" in an attempt to fix/hide the 
underlying problem.
