There is a convention that with emails, you add to the top and with
newsgroups, you add to the bottom.  I subscribe to one group as a
newsgroup, which is also available as a mailing list.  Most subscribe to it
by e-mail, and follow the e-mail convention.  If I add to the top of a news
article with Knode, it thinks that all the rest is signature.

The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an
eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was
    - Unknown.
