topping?

Sorry to be so out of the loop, but what does "topping for..." mean? Thanks!

It means posting a response to a post such as yours and doing so brings that post back to the top of the list where more people might notice it and respond to it.

By posting a new message a poster can bring the thread to the top so it will be read. Thus, by answering your question, I am topping for EmilyV.

A topping is something like a cherry, or say nuts, or sprinkles... You put it on top of ice cream. I put it on sundaes.

"topping for" might mean I dunno. You're buying a sunday for someone else, and you're getting a topping for them, for instance.

D-oh. That was obviously silly. What I meant of course, was you're buying a sundae for someone else, not a sunday... That's just silly, how can you buy a whole day for someone??

Lately I think it would be better if we could "bottom" some posts.

How often do people read the previous replies before replying the same thing? Did I read this recently somewhere here?

Topping, TTT, and replying with no information all serve the same purpose of bringing a thread to the top of the list of 50 threads that are easily viewable. For the remainder of the threads, a person must dig deeper into the history here.

Now we are being characterized on another thread as "boring" and "sad." Of course, if you look at who posted that you'd understand...
