What really annoys me is thalks having nothing to do with DSP ...
So do I - and I frequently use this "ignore thread" command which my
news reader provides.
However, things which have to do with the fellows of this group,
are important - IMHO.
Therefore I followed this thread, trying to catch ideas/portions of
the spirit of the posters.
It's like while talking about the weather, we listen to the tone
indicating the mood of the other person...
My opinion to the topic:
If my response is specific to one item which the OP mentioned,
I usually keep the whole content and insert my contribution where
it seems appropriate.
If I respond to an item which can stand for itself (to my opinion),
I cut away all the rest which seems unnecessary.
If I cannot locate a position where I should insert my answer,
I respond by top posting.
What I normally don't do is append my contribution to the end.
It's convenient if I can see the new contribution in the first
screen (maybe 30..40 lines).
If the thread grows, it would happen that the new part falls below
and I'd have to scroll first. In this case,
I'd prefer that people would either top post or cut - and I would.
