By top-posting I assume you mean the fact that I'm placing my answer
above the original message.
However I fail to see what bearing my lack of knowledge of newsgroup
etiquette has on my ability to use Linux or the probability that people
are going to consider what I say.
Many experienced Usenet users will not even bother reading anything that a
top-poster writes. Ignoring newsgroup etiquette, or not bothering to
learn about it, shows others that you don't care enough to have an opinion
worth considering. That in turn reflects poorly on your perceived Linux
knowledge. It's all tied together. Welcome to Usenet, n00b.
