This is the order I like it:
1) Inline posting with correct snipping
2) Bottom posting with correct snipping
These I dislike:
3) No snipping
5) HTML or other binary posting
5 is killfiled, 4 is often not read and 3 is often not read and/or not

I have obviously upset a few people in this group and I must apologise.
I didn't lurk and find out what happened first because I was quite
desperate to get help. I have never been a member of a usenet group
before and I suppose I should have taken the time to find out the rules
I do hope this newbie hasn't annoyed you too much!
not me certainly, do not worry about it. Your next posts were responsive and everyone has to learn. You are doing ok!
Some never even get as far as trying Linux! how bad is that? :-)
The reason I typed Help! in the subject line was that I had absolutely
no idea what I was doing wrong, I was very greatful to receive the help
I did and indeed have sorted out the system.
Understood. As you make use of usenet more as I am sure you will, it will be more obvious about subjects, and you may see some messages which are deliberately mischievous with undescriptive subjects also. They are best avoided.
While I am grateful for the help I received, perhaps I shouldn't ask
for any more if I need it, in case I annoy you all again.
Not in the least. If posts are relevant to the group, civilised, and follow relevant (group related) expectations, you are sure to get a lot of help. You will also be able to offer help to newbies for a time because you know what it feels like.........
