1) I assume you knew it was a joke.

2) Was it really necessary to post your reply at both extremes of the
post; ie, top and bottom or where you just trying to appease both "top
posters" and "bottom posters"? I actually did that a few times myself.
The problem was that "Top Posters" never read to the bottom and
therefore were not aware of the ploy. Upon further investigation, I
determined that the majority of "top posters' were so dazed and
confused that it just served no point.
