It's absolutely not understandable. It shows disrespect for the reader and
is against Netiquette. Just take some time to learn and use a good
newsreader. Gathering  reactions to all of your posts accross different
newsgroups that way is easilier then opening your e-mail client, looking for
the newsgroup it came from, opening the newsreader and replying to it.
