I think the bigger problem is when a few people do it one way and
everyone else does it another way.    The consensus on this list has
been time after time, "bottom-posting".  Nothing is harder to read or
interpret who said what than when a couple "top-posts" and everyone else
"bottom-posts".  Also, as Greg (groggy)'s e-mail demonstrates,
"bottom-posting" fits well with the philosophy of answering each
question one by one as you flow down the message.  e.g.:

> Question 1

Answer 1

> Question 2

Answer 2

This is not possible (or not as clear) with "top-posting".
