Top posting isn't lazy or stupid... it's better. I like to see the most
recent stuff up front. I bottom post because that's what most other
people want, but top posting is still better. Of course, I'm not that
picky either... I'll read what interests me whether it's top-posted, or
bottom-posted. If the email has lot's of overhead I read what interests
me, and move on. Lot's of header and footer stuff, no biggie - I'll
just skip it...
Just my $2 (inflation makes it worth more :) )
