I've never understood the top/bottom posting fiasco, for fiasco it is. It's almost as foreign to me as the HTML vs Txt e-mail. Perhaps its because I grew up in the Google age, but even in the days of 200 baud modems one would want to see the relevant (i.e. new) text first. Perhaps I just haven't been properly introduced to the contrary argument. Perhaps it's time to repeal this part of the RFC. Oh wait. I just noticed that the "RFC" is only informational, and has not been officially ratified, so adherance is not required.
