And I'm not sure it's of value there either. If I emailed someone a week ago and s/he responds today, proper quote trimming is of great value, just as it is with newsgroups/mailing lists. The only time it wouldn't much matter is if we're going back and forth with extreme rapidity, and then you may as well bottom-post because it makes little difference.
