You are right, this can be quite annoying, but it is not necessary
that those people are not used to inline reply, it is rather that
their e-mail client might display the reply in a poor way.
When I was using Thunderbird a few years ago, if I composed an e-mail
with inline reply, then above and beneath my reply, there always was a
clearly visible gap. However, this gap was only visible in the compose
window. When looking at the email afterwards in the reader, my reply
stuck tightly between the quoted message parts, almost impossible to spot if
you do not accidently stumble upon it. [... compose habits to mitigate this
So it is not always the fault of the users alone.
The particular user I had this with isn't at fault, but also a nontechnical
user not used to inline reply. And they are using Thunderbird. Your decription
above does sound like a very flawed disconnect between compose and actualy
view. WYSINWYG I guess.
