I myself don't care for top posting. It just tosses a wrench in a
nicely flowing thread. I have started playing around with mutt the last
week or so, and I now appreciate how netiquette has come to be.
Specifically to mailing lists. Top posting, HTML, 2-3 pages of quoted
text to see "Thanks that did it" etc.
Not trying to viral market mutt or any other MUA, but give a shell
client a try and very quickly the entire idea standardized etiquette
