The whole point about this particlar rule is that it has no purpose other than to force everybody to conform to somebody's idea of perfection.

You've been told more than twice, it isn't an arbitrary rule. It isn't
a petty rule. It isn't about perfection.

It's about clarity. So that the threaded archives are intelligible
instead of jumbled. So that the post-by-post emails properly read from
top to bottom.

It's also about courtesy, not dropping dingleberries dozens or scores
of lines long (and some of you others could stand to snip the extraneous
even though you do properly bottom-post).

Like has been said: if you don't play by the playground rules, don't
be surprised if the other kids don't want to play with you.
