Plain text

I prefer receiving emails in plain text (not HTML).

You can find instructions on how to choose to write plain text email with your email client there:

Posting style

I follow the bottom-posting convention, i.e. replies go below, at the bottom of the thread. Most email clients force users into following the top-posting convention.

What is top-posting?1

A3: Please.
Q3: Should I avoid top posting [...]?

A2: Because, by reversing the order of a 
    conversation, it leaves the reader without 
    much context, and makes them read a message 
    in an unnatural order.
Q2: Why is top posting irritating?

A1: It is the practice of putting your reply to 
    a message before the quoted message, instead 
    of after the (trimmed) message.
Q1: What is top posting?

Choose an email client which support bottom-posting: By the way, Apple Mail, Gmail, Outlook, Protonmail do not support bottom-posting as of 2023.

I posted a summary of the prologue on the homepage:
