Top Posting?

I'm top posting my reply. Here it is: My inbox, and all my other mailboxes
in all my mail clients, have been sorted by Date, DESCENDING, starting a
few minutes after I get my hands on them, going back to about 1993. Most
recent information on top, no scrolling to see what's new. That's just the
way I think. Reasonable people may differ, but I will most likely continue
to top-post or interleave, depending on the complexity of the prior post
and/or my response to it.
