Top Posting is putting your reply BEFORE the question.

A bit like this!

Why is it bad?

Because you read the reply before the reason for the reply and that
makes our head hurt.

Eventually people actually stop replying to known top posters.

It makes their heads hurt.


In the interest of not hurting any, intentional or otherwise, please
bottom post.

And snip out non relevant content in your reply as not everyone is on
super fast broadband and downloading the many many layers of reply can
be annoying.
