I know many people hate top-posts, but when you get 1400+ emails every day
and answer 50+, it sure does speed things up.  Having the relevant text
right up front means I don't have to scroll down to find it.  If I don't
understand the reply and need more context, that's when I scroll down to
see what the reply was all about.  If all I see on my screen when I scan a
message is a bunch of >'s I tend to just skip them.  If you want me to
consider a message you need to get to your point really really quickly or
it is an automatic delete for me.
