[wp-hackers] Cruft (was Caching of numbers of comments?)

I hate to be a nit-picker, but the proclivity for top-posting on this
list is out of control.

A: Because it messes up threading.
Q: why would I not reply by top-posting?

Worse still is the lack of trimming replies.  To quote Chunk from "The
Goonies": I've stood all I can stand and I can't stand no more!

This question is in reference to something _waaay_ down below.  Why is
the entire thread preserved, when it's not directly related to the
question?  Why was the question put up above the text to which it applied?

See that stuff above?  It's cruft.  It gets automatically added to the
end of every list message.  By failing to trim it, you're unnecessarily
bloating all our inboxes, as we get two or three (or more!) copies of
the same thing.

More cruft!!

Please, folks, try not to top-post.  And please trim your replies.

And have a happy holiday season.
