While I know that the practice won't, and shouldn't change for me, I 
would just like to say that for some of us, top posting is more 
useful.  I am a blind computer user, and top posting is easier to 
handle.  I can read the response, and continue reading if I need 
context, more information etc.

Unix/Linux people tend to be pretty black and white, and the world 
should be a certain way ... but remember, others of us may have a 
good reason for wanting a different world!
