Well, Google with Gmail certainly aren't helping.

I also thoroughly loathe answers in the form "my response in green
below", where the Outlook users have tried to answer each point in
turn, but failed in the point that Outlook doesn't make this easy for
the rest of us.

Usually, top posting is a sign that the poster might as well not have
quoted the original text at all, since the quoted text rarely aids in

I agree, though, that complaining publicly on a mailing list regarding
one part's choice of quoting or not usually is bad netiquette.
