USENET has conventions, one of which is to bottom post or to inline post
when appropriate, for clarity.

Even google groups supports that convention with this citation from:

http://groups.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer 348&topic%0

"Summarize what you're following up.

When you click "Reply" under "show options" to follow up an existing
article, Google Groups includes the full article in quotes, with the
cursor at the top of the article. Tempting though it is to just start
typing your message, please STOP and do two things first.  
Look at the quoted text and remove parts  that are irrelevant.
Then, go to the BOTTOM of the article and start typing there.
Doing this makes it much easier for your readers to get through your
post.  They'll have a reminder of the relevant text before your
comment, but won't have to re-read the entire article.  
And if your reply appears on a site before the original article does,
they'll get the gist of what you're talking about."

Since it's totally within your power to follow that established,
eminently practical convention, it seems that by failing to do so you're
deliberately trying to annoy and to make life just a little bit harder
for those who read you.  

Why would you want to do that?

and just when did you join the Electronic Information Age, Sonny......
For your information Usenet and NewsGroups DO have Accepted Conventions,
and have since NNTP was first defined, back in the ARRPANet Days.....
of course you being in diapers at the time, wouldn't have know that....
These have changed over the years, as bandwidth and technology have
increased, which has made the Top Posting/Bottom Posting Conventions
a Moot Point, for the LAST DECADE....

Yep... Costco sells All-Purpose Flour for $.26 per pound.



Budweiser?  :D

My mistake, $.24/lb.  Tax exempt.



Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ear... where would we be
without Ikea, Swiss chocolate and German beer?
