I have already read (and so has everyone else) the post being replied to in
previous email. I want the new post to be on top and not have to bother to
scroll down and find where the latest post starts.

As a matter of fact I often do not bother to scroll down to find the current
words of a bottom post. It takes too much time to "hunt and seek" when I am
trying to get thru many emails.

With top posting,
The inclusion of the old post at the bottom is there only for reference if
someone isn't quiet clear on what is being replied to. No need to run
through it again if not needed.
