Starting with the cursor at the top is proper behavior for an mail composer. That way you can read through the quoted text, removing what is not relevant and interspersing your comments directly below the text you found relevant. Full-quoting and sticking a few lines at the bottom is as bad or worse as full-quoting and sticking stuff at the top. The context can get muddled instead of dropped, and the amount of scrolling can become quite annoying. > and all our end-user > clientele prefer it, so I've wound up adopting sloppy email habits. It happens. Some communities really do prefer top posting for whatever reason, and it's usually in a new members best interest to conform.
