Correct. I didn't suggest that, and in fact made note of the fact that
you were interleave posting (which is the least ambiguous method of
all). What I was saying is *top posts* confuse threads. Usually top
posts are confusing unless all pronouns are replaced by explicit
descriptions. But *always* follow-ons to top posts are confusing.

Since you mostly bottom and interleave post, and you trim quoted
context correctly, your emails aren't confusing.
