Top posting is ok if you also trim your quotes.
I've started reading posts <space> <space> ... 10mins later ... <space>,
WTF nothing, oh bloody top poster <PgUp> <PgUp> ... 10mins later ...
<PgUp> just to read a one line thanks, FFS. If they'd put a blank line
between their remark and the rest of the message I probably would have
Worse is <space> <space> ... 10mins later ... <space> just to
read a one line thanks.
Non trimming of quotes is lazy + rude IMHO
P.S. <space> is message scroller key in mutt (at least in my default setup)
