Multiposting is posting separate copies of the same message in different
newsgroups.

You have multiposted this to both

microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics

and

microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize

See this on how to crosspost...
What is the accepted way to share a message across multiple newsgroups?

And see this on why not to top-post...

Thank you for the tip. :-)

When accessing newsgroups as often as I do I hardly ever read bottom posts
anymore. It wastes my time.

Occupational Health and Safety means MS directors could be fined in NSW,
Australia if anyone here gets injured by following your advice. As death is
unlikely they probably aren't risking goal. But why do you wish to injure
people. Pretty stupid, eh.

I've been using Dialog (a newsreader) for over a year. Has a little handy
button that suppresses quoted material when reading. I see something like
this when reading:

So and so wrote:
(43 lines suppressed)

and then the reply follows in full text. Click a button and I can toggle
entire content to text. Nice feature and miss it when I use OE or OE +OE
Quotefix. Sure makes for easier reading with bottom posted replies.

Personally, I bottom post replies because I like the flow in conversation
it provides but I hate scrolling through something I just read when looking
at replies. Go figure :)

Hi Sharon,

[[ I hate scrolling through something I just read ]]

Me too. :-D

Bottom vs. top posting argument is akin to gas vs. electric stove.
Preference only.

I just know someone is going to post saying they like a gas oven with an
electric cooktop. ;-)
