If it's well-composed, top isn't so bad, (eg. trimming heavily),
and there are occasions when it's proper, but for conversational
stuff, like this, even us RPN types like Roman left to right, top
to bottom texts :-)

I'm far too lazy to war over it.

Well-edited top-posting beats the crap out of bottom-posted
non-edited any day!
