That's where judicious snipping of previous emails and replying directly
underneath the points your addressing is ideal.

Top-posting = bad and goes against the way you read (and sorry, while I
do read every email in a topic I'm following, I don't remember what was
said from one day to the next). Bottom-posting isn't much better, but it
follows the NORMAL flow of reading. Email is just like any other
text-based communication.

Last time I'm posting on the subject. Lets go help some folks.
