How are you reading the posts?  I read the list in GMail via Firefox,
and while the default is to post a reply at the top of the message,
you aren't forced to it.  It's easy enough to selectively quote and
intersperse comment.  I've been in groups like this long enough doing
so is a reflex.

Top posing is the annoying norm in MS Outlook, along with posting in
HTML.  (I took some pains back when I used Outlook for email to force
it to post in plain text.)
