Not true. Pine doesn't, for example. It begins a reply with the cursor
at the very top of the message body.

"Cursor at the top on reply" is correct. Its correct because that is where one should start *editing*, is very rarely where one should start *typing*. Blaming the situation on Microsoft is too simplistic.

The #1 problem I have with top-posters is that they fail to read the entire message they are re-sending. Had they bothered to read the whole thing they would have deleted the illegible bulk. But then again if they would actually read their own message in its entirety they'd know it was a mess with everything out of order and badly formatted and learn to properly trim and reply with inserted comments.

Top posters will not be shown the honor of a reply.
