You can educate one person at a time, but you can never educate errant
participants. This is UseNet. People will top-post, people will not quote,
subject lines will rarely be descriptive and names will not be disclosed.
When I spot a thread where I see potential for off-topic discussion, spam
content, or an OP that will break netiquette in any way imaginable, I move
on to the next one. It does not become frustrating until later on, having
got too deep inside.

In fact, I didn't intend to get (or should have gotten) involved in this
thread, but I saw your name and wondered why /you/ found it reply-worthy. A
few lines, a URL, anonymous sender and a subject line such as this should
always be a detrrent.
