Worse then useless replies (was Re: Use 'apt-get dist-upgrade'.)

Top posting is frowned on here because it tends to mangle context. But so much worse is deleting everything you're replying to AND changing the Subject to boot, which doesn't just mangle context but removes it entirely. While your replies MIGHT be helpful to the specific poster to whom you're replying (and even that's iffy, given how you routinely change the Subject), they are no use at all in the archive.
So, please, keep some context and only change the Subject if you're actually changing the subject (in which case you should really start a new thread).
Just trying to help you to be helpful,
