Yeah, insisting that people not post 2^n quantities of text for n messages 
is really gonna be a barrier.

If you can't figure out how not to top-post, delete all the preceding text 
(two keystrokes on most systems: Select All, then delete, or just Select 
All and start typing) and write from scratch.

    Expect criticism if you top-post
