Folks,

I find it really hard to follow conversations that use top posting (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posting_style).
If you have a [Cucumber] topic, please respond with inline comments. And
use
plain text email - not html.

Thanks,
Aslak

I find it quite hard to follow conversations that use bottom posting,
so I'll try to do interleaved comments from now on. It's almost
impossible to do interleave posting on the iphone, btw.

Thanks.
Julian.

Just so you know, _your_ message isn't just plain text. Here's a portion

And Aslak's post was multipart/mime!? Was that just for the irony? You
guys are funny... :-)

Not only that, he did it in <html> so it was impossible for
me to see whether it was top or bottom. The sarcasm was clear
enough, tho ;)

+1 from me, too.

I'm adding a request: cut out the paragraphs of the email
that you are not responding to. I'm encountering plenty of
emails that don't fit on my screen (which is much bigger than
an iPhone) and turn out to contain not much more than
"yes", "thanks" or "see lighthouse <url>".

Bye,
Kero.

Same goes for signatures, if you'd ask me.
