1. If you have to wade to the bottom of a long post, you can realize the 
service you can do others by cutting it down.
2. If there is some need to retain old comments, it is much easier to 
read if you're reading them top to bottom.
3. Also remember to change Subject lines when the topic changes.
Not doing these things is a form of laziness, ie saying "my time is too 
valuable to waste it helping readers out."
