I know but the reason why people prefer bottom posting is because
top-posting forces the reader to work, who has to go down in the same
email to see what the last email was. (also the bandwidth but that was
in the 90s)
If you use an email client with threading, of course it will not trim
your message, but you will not care if someone top-post or bottom-post
because you will never lose the conversation thread.
That's why is common for gmail people to don't know what top-posting
and bottom-posting is. Gmail even hides the old text when someone
top-posted. That's why it their threading style have solved the
top-bottom controversy (at least for its users).
(Yes, they have all my emails and insist of having my non-existent
cellphone number. I would go away if I find an email client that is as
comfortable as gmail web interface. But didn't find one. I'm trapped
