What I have found works for me is to compose a message that I would find easy to read. I know this doesn't mean everyone is able to read it as well as others, or myself, but I've got a better chance, I've found, if I edit the message to contain only the pertinent information to my reply. This does not always apply to messages between two or three people, as it is helpful to maintain a thread, and it's not as likely to get munged up through many edits. It's really very simple. It doesn't matter to me if the reply is top or bottom posted, as long as I'm able to ascertain the meaning or questions being posed. If I can read it, I will generally respond. If I want my message replied to, I create it in such as way that people don't generally find it difficult to read. Thanks!
