This group is too large, there is not enough time to read all the messages,
so goodbye to all and I hope that you will resolve the cat problem in the
near future ;-))

I'm sure they will,
would you like them to send you the pelt? ;-)

Err?? Why not just read fewer messages?
Seems a bit daft not to read any. You might miss something
important/interesting.

The message
from "Roberto" contains these words:

This group is too large, there is not enough time to read all the messages,


Do you read every single article in your daily newspaper? Or do you
select whichever headlines/authors/topics interest you?

Big is beautiful where usenet is concerned. We're lucky in this group
to have such a wide range of posts that it's always possible to find
some worth reading. Boorish topics and posters can be automatically
filtered out by software, or left unopened.

Janet.

He's using Outlook Express, not a proper newsreader - perhaps it isn't
possible to filter out what he doesn't want?

OE is easy enough to filter out what you don't want, and it's easier to use
than most Newsreaders (IMHO).

I'd say so, I just prefer not to. =D

There aren't any newsreader I know that begin reading at the bottom of the
message!

There don't need to be. Judicious use of snipping when replying means
that the entire message, in the correct order, is displayed on the
screen. I automatically scroll to the bottom of long posts and then
wonder why nothing has been added at the bottom.

It's your choice, but you'll find that the posters who are here for
the gardening chat, and want to be understood in multiple-poster
conversations, use bottom posting so that other readers can make sense
of the thread and join in it.

Most regulars here make an effort to include new posters by replying to
them however awkwardly their message is presented, but eventually stop
bothering if a top poster makes no effort to learn how to help group
conversations flow logically and economically for everyone's benefit.

Janet.

He's not likely to get any reaction at all from those who don't bother
reading persistent top-posters.
