Well, I feel the same way about how people use the word "nauseous,"
when they should use the word "nauseated."   The difficulty for me is
that almost all of my business email contact takes place with
top-posting, so it is sometimes hard for me to remember to bottom-post
when replying to a list...

Well, that is true.  And it has probably made them less supportive of

If that was PenguinDays, I went to the one in Oakland.  I found it OK,
but nothing great and not, imho, worth the day I took to go to it.
