As Ethan says, not a moron. (Though the way he put it, he sounded like Wheatley... and if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out Portal and Portal 2, they're games well worth playing.) One of the beauties of text is that it's easy to research; if someone drops a term like "top-posting", you key that into your search engine, and voila, extra information. This is another advantage of separate standards and common conventions. Everything works with everything else, because it is simple and because nobody has to do everything themselves. How do you use git to manage your CPython source tree? It's exactly the same as using git for anything else, so you don't need Python-specific information, just git-specific information. How do you use a mailing list to discuss proposed language changes in Python? Again, it's generic stuff about mailing lists, so you don't need anything from Python. This is why we work with open standards. Email and mailing lists are an important part of this.

Many years later, when email became widespread in business communication, it became a widespread practice to reply above the entire original and leave it (supposedly untouched) below the reply. While each online community <https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_community> differs on which styles are appropriate or acceptable, within some communities the use of the “wrong” method risks being seen as a breach of netiquette <https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netiquette>, and can provoke vehement response from community regulars. """ De-facto I wouldn't know which convention (of course now I clearly prefer "interleaved posting" for obvious reason... Now that I know how to do it) so a Manual or HowTo when signing in would be an idea :) Of course, I clearly prefer interleaved posting for obvious reasons... now that I know how to produce it using my daily mail client.
