I am sure on those other ml they believe non top posters are twits.  

ML's are communities were we try and respect each other.

I personally don't care in some circumstances I find it easier to follow
hundreds of threads by reading them top post, because I down want to
page down to read the 1 or 2 liner.

Other times I prefer inline responses and other times bottom only

My rule of thumb respect the list even if you think it is wrong.

As for calling people names because they don't follow your posting
rules, well thats just plain silly but sticks and stones

"As you know, we don't have relationships with Iran. I mean, that's -- ever since the late '70s, we have no contacts with them, and we've totally sanctioned them. In other words, there's no sanctions -- you can't -- we're out of sanctions."
